Side event at the FAO Science and Innovation Forum 2022
Access to reliable, affordable and sustainable energy is vital for production, post-harvest management and cooking of food. While the need for transforming agrifood systems is certain, the debate on how this transformation should take place has not yet resulted in definitive conclusions and strategies. This side event at the FAO Science and Innovation Forum 2022 will address progress and opportunities for more efficient, inclusive and sustainable energy consumption in agrifood systems. The speakers will highlight the role of renewable energy technologies on transforming agrifood system. They will also discuss the current knowledge on best practices and approaches to drive a more inclusive and gendered innovation development.
