In this edition of Canning House's Sustainable Development conference series, we consider how the evolution of Latin America's agribusiness sector, the innovative technologies that drive it, and the food and drink it produces contribute to a sustainable future for the region.
Sustainable Agribusiness and Innovation
In this edition of Canning House's Sustainable Development conference series, we focus on Latin America’s agribusiness and innovation.
The evolution of Latin America's agriculture business, the technologies that drive it, and the food and drink it produces, both for export and for domestic consumption, is a crucial cog in the region's continued drive for sustainable development. At this conference, Canning House gathers experts to discuss the industries' current sustainability credentials, and what the future may hold.
Canning House's Sustainable Development series of events and conferences focuses on the themes of the United Nations' 17 Sustainable Development Goals and the aims of the 2021 UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in a Latin American context. This event addresses SDGs #2 Zero Hunger and #12 Responsible Consumption and Production.
