Now more than ever before, our food systems are being tested. Political and economic fallout from the pandemic and the accelerating pace of climate change have only worsened some of our most pressing and intractable challenges related to production and distribution of food and resources across the globe.
Data-informed innovation is unlocking some of our most complex challenges around food—from improving infrastructure and access to basic technology, to creating more equitable and efficient supply changes, and transforming agriculture. Communities are also thinking differently about how and why people experience food insecurity, driving forward new solutions to problems we once thought were unsolvable.
In this conversation, we’ll explore how innovators are changing the ways we produce, access, and share food.
