T2 S2: Innovation and Technology for Agri-Food Systems transformation
22.11.2023 11:15 – 12:45
New and innovative technologies are key to develop sustainable agri-food systems. Water has become a highly competed resource and agriculture uses a large share of available water on the planet. The scenarios are further exacerbated due to the increased chance of extreme climatic events leading to water scarcity and drought promoted by climate change. More efficient and sustainable uses of water in agri-food systems are needed, which would include reuse and water treatment, smart agriculture, water management and assessing the sustainability of current irrigation systems.
Contributions will allow the comparison of different innovation approaches to design more efficient and sustainable agri-food systems in relation to water use, management and water quality improvement.
