Forum on Sustainable Agriculture

Thursday, April 21, 2016 - 2:30pm to 5:30pm
Event Location: 
Columbia Business School, 301 Uris Hall

The agriculture sector is confronting the challenge of feeding a growing and increasingly affluent population while minimizing environmental, social and climate impacts. To profile this challenge and innovative solutions, Columbia University will present the second forum on sustainable agriculture (the 2015 forum presentations are available at http://eices.columbia.edu/events/past-events/).  This event will address the topic from the perspective of small-scale producers, entrepreneurs and NGOs working to build regional agricultural economies that are regenerative by design -- not only providing wholesome, locally sourced food and other agricultural products, but also strengthening rural communities, creating livelihoods for farmers, workers and other market participants, and restoring the soil, water and atmosphere that sustains all life on earth.
