SMART FARMS EDITION – August 1st – 7th, 2019
We research and apply climate-smart agriculture (CSA) with the intent of transforming and re-focusing agricultural systems. This is an essential ingredient in the support of both societal development and food security in a world actively fighting climate change.
CSA has three major objectives:
1) To sustainably increasing agricultural productivity and incomes
2) To adapt and build resilience to climate change
3) To reducing and/or removing greenhouse gas emissions where possible.
Participants have the chance to explore rural based smart and regenerative farms that are working to develop strategies to better connect rural and urban communities. This will allow for the blending of both innovative technologies and millenary traditions.
