EBRD Agribusiness team is inviting guests to a webinar in our Agribusiness Talks series entitled “Decarbonising agri-food chains - private sector in action” on Wednesday 23rd June 2021 – from 14:00 to 16:00 GMT.
Global food production is both a cause and a victim of climate change. High temperatures, extreme weather events, and changing weather patterns have grave consequences on global food supply chains. The agri-food sector is also one of the most commonly cited sectors for mitigating contributions, as countries present their Nationally Determined Contributions within the framework of the Paris Agreement.
How can we engage in green transformation and capitalise on greening agribusiness? How can we identify the right green investments and who bears the cost of sustainability and climate change mitigation? This webinar will tackle these questions and give the opportunity to practitioners and businesses from across the agri-food sector to share their perspectives on greening.
