Brussels, Belgium Research and Development Town Hall
FEATURING OPENING REMARKS BY EU COMMISSIONER FOR THE ENVIRONMENTE, JANEZ POTOČNIK
CropLife International, Europabio, and the European Crop Protection Association have partnered together to bring researchers from around the world together to discuss the future of sustainable agriculture and environmental protection in our world. With a growing population and a changing climate, what technologies and strategies will farmers need to use in order to ensure the protection of our planet’s biodiversity for generations to come? What role will policymakers play in meeting this challenge?
You are invited to take part in the discussion and make your voice heard. We want to hear your questions and comments about what will be the greatest challenges farmers are going to face? What do you believe will be the best way for farmers to feed a growing world while protecting our natural resources?
