This is an external event to the NISD that is hosted by the International Potato Center (CIP)

The need to innovate in agriculture is more urgent than ever. Rising populations will require 60% more food by 2050. Increasing urbanization in Africa and Asia and the impacts of climate change demand we produce this food with fewer inputs. While much of the world struggles with the threat of food insecurity, the cost of nutritious foods in the developing world far exceeds that paid in industrialized nations.

The International Potato Center, celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, is delighted to sponsor this special event to discuss the crucial role of agricultural innovation to overcome these challenges and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.
