Come and take part in this informative event, where a panel of distinguished global experts and policy makers will discuss how improving access to clean water can make poor and vulnerable communities better able to withstand catastrophes, and how access to water for the world’s poorest people will be essential in building adaptable, more climate-resilient communities.
Nearly a quarter of damages wrought by natural disasters on the developing world are borne by the agricultural sector. Building resilience of livelihoods to threats and crises must therefore be the top priority, FAO demands.
Twenty-two per cent of all damages inflicted by natural hazards such as drought, floods storms or tsunamis are registered within the agriculture sector.
With a specific focus on the application of big data in agri-tech, and in-depth analysis of the market opportunity for biopesticides, seed treatment and drought-resilience, the 2014 summit will bring together global leaders in resource-efficient agriculture with the world’s most innovative technology developers and the international clean-tech investment community.
