Event description


Global issues faced by every country in the future are food, energy and water problems due to the ongoing problems of agricultural land conversion to non-agriculture activities and uncertainty to climate change. In Southeast Asia, more than 6 million hectares have been turned into palm plantations in the past 10 years which lead to a cause of deforestation.

In the future, agriculture should be able to conserve the environment for sustainable food production while producing more food and energy for the population. Therefore, the role of technological innovation is vital which will allow farms to be more profitable, efficient, safe, and more importantly, environmentally friendly.

This event will offer useful insights on how innovative approach through technology could help sustain the agriculture and sustainable food production in Indonesia. Learn these insights from 2 great startups which revolutionize the agricultural practice and food innovation technology
