Three main topics

Agricultural technology (Agtech)

Global investment in the Agtech sector has significantly accelerated from $500 million in 2012 to nearly $5 billion in 2015 as entrepreneurs and investors look to tackle production and sustainability issues facing agriculture. Today's technologies have the potential to completely reshape global agriculture, increasing productivity of the agriculture system while reducing the environmental and social costs. During AgriVision we will showcase some exciting new technologies. In addition, we will organise a 32 hour AgriVision hackathon that will offer delegates the opportunity to engage with tech and creative experts.

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR)

The rise of antimicrobial resistance is recognized as one of the greatest threats to public health today. Evidence shows that resistance is driven by the total volume of antibiotics used, also in food production. A drastic reduction of this number and prudent use is crucial, not only in the interests of human health but also for animal health and animal welfare. During AgriVision we will stress the importance of such a holistic cross-collaboration involving the entire value chain, including governments.

Agricultural development

Some 795 million people continue to suffer from hunger and most of these people live in rural areas in the developing world, and rely on agriculture for their food and income. Sustainable agricultural development, in particular in the livestock sector, plays a major role in improving food security and nutrition. It drives major economic, social and environmental changes in food systems worldwide, and provides an entry point for understanding the issues around sustainable agricultural development as a whole.
