MENA Summit 2019

The Role of Technology in Global Food Security

While population growth and climate change promise to introduce profound challenges to food security around the world, countries in the Middle East are especially vulnerable. Going forward, a global exchange of research, resources, and initiatives will be crucial to ensure that everyone has access to a sustainable, affordable, and nutritious food supply. Agricultural leaders, entrepreneurs, and investors will explore collaborative models to advance agricultural technology. Throughout, radical industry innovations will take center stage, including digital farming and the application of data-driven decision-making to new production systems such as vertical farming.
