09:00 – 10:40 EET — Adaptation: Business opportunities and responsibilities

In recent years the world has witnessed the impacts of climate change rapidly intensifying with more severe, frequent and unpredictable extreme weather events, and a rising sea level that threatens communities and countries all over the world. The private sector has in many ways taken a leading role in the establishment of mitigatory efforts, but a similar business-led movement on adaptation still needs to be developed. This seminar will explore responsibilities and opportunities for businesses in climate change adaptation.

12:00 – 12:40 EET — Call for collaboration: Developing climate resilient food system pathways

Too many initiatives try to solve the problem in front of them, causing other problems. Therefore, we would like to demonstrate the vision/goal towards how a climate resilient food system would look like. Based on that vision/goal we will then have examples of solutions that can bring the society in this direction. Given facts are that 90% of the population growth in/to cities will take place in Africa and Asia and 70% of the world population will live in cities by 2050. Today we produce 49% of the food we use in the aqua culture, this will increase a lot by 2050 according to FAO. But the way we produce food today, both on land and in the aqua culture is slowly but surely destroying the possibilites to produce the food we need.

13:00–14:30 EET — We Can Do It! Growing Food & Restoring Earth

We can't solve the climate crisis if we don't solve our food crisis. How do we produce our food in a way that is financially sustainable for both farmers and consumers while restoring the earth and binding carbon to the soil? How do we encourage people to buy food that is nutritious and with a low carbon footprint? And what's the deal with food waste? In this session, we highlight some examples of how we can maintain healthy soils while farming and how we can inspire people to be more conscious about what they eat.

13:00 – 13:40 EET — Technological innovations accelerating circularity within the food value chain

According to the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), about a third of all food produced globally is lost or wasted along the food supply chain from farm to fork. This also has a negative impact on food security and food availability. Addressing these challenges requires a systems approach that addresses a wide range of complex issues in a holistic and sustainable manner. For example, creating stronger local and circular food systems helps keep valuable natural resources, minerals and nutrients circulating, while adopting technologically innovative solutions to manage food quality and reduce food loss and waste is key to driving circularity. Businesses and policymakers must work together to transform the way the world produces and consumes food. What can companies deliver in terms of technology to solve these global challenges? How can policy come in to support? General Alfa Laval, Ragn-Sells and Tetra Pak, three Swedish technological leaders operating in the food sector, and the city of São Paulo (Brazil) will share game changing solutions in the field of regenerative agriculture, food losses, nutrient and water recoveries and discuss pathways for scaling up adoption of such innovations.

14:00 – 14:40 EET — How can we produce sufficient, healthy, and affordable protein in a sustainable way to feed a global population of 11 billion people by 2050?

According to the UN Food & Agricultural Organisation, the world is likely to need another 70% more food to feed a population of almost 11 billion people by 2050. Today, food production accounts for a third of all greenhouse gas emission, and it is an imperative to also minimise the environmental impact of food production to close the gap to meet the demand for food in less than 30 years in a sustainable way.

Also, the world will need food, which is both sufficient in quantity, but also healthy and affordable. Plant-based foods will play a key role, but fertile farmland and clean water supplies are insufficient to provide for a transition to a plant-based diet as the only solution.

Protein is at the heart of the issue. To close the gap, we need far more healthy and affordable protein and to achieve this, we need new kinds of protein. So, how will we close the gap?

15:00 – 15:40 EET — Accelerating on-farm adoption of enteric emissions solutions

The dairy sector provides a vital source of global nutrition and supports the livelihoods of a billion people. Yet enteric emissions from the ruminant digestive process are also the largest single source of human-related methane. While farmers have made significant reductions in the methane intensity of dairy products through enhanced herd management, there is a need to scale enteric emission solutions that can make immediate and impactful reductions in enteric emissions.

European dairy cooperative Arla has made a sector-leading commitment to reduce methane emissions from their farmer-owners. Learn more about their new sustainability incentive program and how farmers are adopting on-farm climate practices. The panel will also explore the current state of enteric emission solutions and what additional research is needed to support farmer adoption of enteric emission solutions.

Transforming dairy production systems across the value chain to reduce impact on the planet will be essential to securing the future of the sector.
