Dialogue on Sustainable Food and Agriculture: Leading the transition
About this Event
Monday, 23 November, 2020
2 PM – 3:30 PM (CET)
Food and Agriculture are in a necessary transition. In 2020, there is an increasing awareness of the profound impacts of our agricultural activities on this planet. But how to proceed? How policy makers can help in Europe and in Brazil? What is already done and need more visibility?
Inspired by the Farm to Fork Strategy, this webinar will focus on Precision farming and Carbon farming.
Precision Farming refers to a management concept focusing on (near-real time) observation, measurement and responses to inter- and intra-variability in crops, fields and animals. The concept is made possible by the rapid development of ICT-based sensor technologies and procedures along with dedicated software.
Carbon farming refers to farm activities having an effect to carbon pools in soils and vegetation, at farm level and with the purpose of decreasing emissions, increasing carbon removal and storage and protect C-rich soils (climate mitigation with land management practices). It is based on relevant agricultural practices to increase carbon sequestration and reduction of GHG emission.
To open the dialogue on this extensive thematic, we will be Live from Brussels and Brazil with a first-class speaker selection.
