ONLINE DISCUSSION: Future of Agriculture
The Future of Agriculture is a global online policy discussion forum, intended to explore four key issues:
- farmers’ knowledge as the driver of innovation and investment;
- women’s land ownership;
- farming’s dependence on fossil fuels; and
- effective risk management systems.
Rather than critique the current state of affairs, the discussion seeks to generate bold proposals to meet increasing world demand for food in a way that eradicates hunger and preserves the environment. The online discussion runs December 10 - December 21. Each day, one or two essays by leading thinkers on agriculture and food justice are posted. You’re invited to join the discussion: read the essays, post comments and share with your networks.
