Global Food Summit 2022 - Ambassadors for Bioeconomy
Foodtropolis: Urban. Circular. Food.
The focus lies on the motto: The economical value of food bioeconomy.
Armed conflicts, pandemics, and climate crises challenge sustainable development. The recent experience has shown that modern biotechnology has a lot to offer addressing some of the challenges such as the gene editing for the production of more efficient and sustainable crops, animals, energy and medicines. In this session international experts will discuss the economics of bioeconomy innovation in response to crises.
Climate, war and Covid – Can Bioeconomy Help to Cope With Crises?
The war in Ukraine is affecting food security not only in Europe, but worldwide, and is driving up prices accordingly. Also, fertilizers for agriculture are also becoming scarce and expensive. Global logistics chains continue to be disrupted by covid lockdowns, such as in Shanghai or Beijing, or have not yet returned to pre-covid levels in their interconnectedness. At the same time, India and Pakistan are currently experiencing an unprecedented heat wave that could cause a loss of around 500 kilograms of wheat per hectare, according to initial estimates.
Is a “perfect storm” approaching here? And can bioeconomic production methods in agriculture or food production help to make our food supply more secure and at the same time more climate-friendly in the future?
This time we are honored to welcome Brazil and Israel as a partner country at the Global Food Summit on June 8, 2022 in Munich and that His Excellency the Ambassador of Brazil to Germany, Mr. Roberto Jaguaribe, will present “Bioeconomy made in Brazil” in Munich.
