This niche webinar co-organized by DEIK/Turkey-New Zealand Business Council and The Embassy of New Zealand in Ankara will focus on 'adapting' agriculture / agricultural trade to a damaged ecosystem; climate change, prevalent and extreme hunger- as well as the impact of a pandemic. Speakers will focus on the transformation of food production, promotion of sustainable agricultural technologies, building resilience to shocks and succesful practices of both countries.
Challenges to achieving food security will be compounded by a growing world population with an increasing appetite for meat and fish, alongside demands from competing agricultural products such as cotton and biofuels. The impact of climate change and the rise in extreme weather conditions will further challenge producers, as crops are destroyed and production has to shift to new regions, creating short-term fluctuations in food availability.

Key concepts: Efficient allocation of resources, smarter farming, nutritional diversity - future food, reducing emissions and efforts towards sustainability, concerns over trade frictions, strengthening farmers / consumers.
