Innovation in agriculture gives us a real chance of feeding nine billion people using less resource and with no environmental damage. It has the potential to offer solutions to combat global warming, provide technologies that can improve nutrition and social prosperity in developing countries, be an unlimited source of clean energy, and help us look after our more precious resource: water.
Since the launch, GFIA has received major attention for its commitment to challenge the way food is produced. Now with the backing of 32 globally significant partners committed to using GFIA as a catalyst for change, GFIA 2015 will be the most influential event in the world for all those wishing to contribute to the sustainable agriculture movement.
