HBS Food and Agriculture Conference

Join HBS Food, Agriculture and Water Club this year for their conference highlighting the latest innovations and opportunities for impact in four different areas: AgTech (Growing Innovation), Future of Protein, Food Waste Reduction, and Increasing Food Access for All.

By 2050, we will need to make enough food to feed 9 billion people. At the same time, according to the latest UN report, our current food system is one of the major causes of the world's most pressing environmental problems--including global warming, land degradation, air and water pollution, and loss of biodiversity. The IPCC estimates that making changes to how we use forests, grow crops, and raise livestock could yield upward of 9 gigatonnes of carbon dioxide emissions reductions per year by 2050.

This year our conference will be highlighting the latest innovations and opportunities for change that will allow us to feed our growing population, while ensuring we preserve the environment and our most precious resources for generations to come.
