Our CEO & Co-Founder Caroline Busse presented nadar at the Science and Innovation Forum (SIF) of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) in Rome next to Dr. Qu Dongyu, Director-General of the FAO, Dr. Vincent Martin, Director of the Office of Innovation at FAO, and Dr. Ildephonse Musafiri, Agriculture Minister of Rwanda, amongst others.
The FAO Science and Innovation Forum 2023 was themed “Science and Innovation for Climate Action” which is aligned with the overarching theme of the World Food Forum “Agrifood Systems Transformation Accelerates Climate Action” and supports the global efforts toward reaching the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the FAO’s “Four Betters”.
The spotlight of FAO SIF 2023 was on novel climate technologies, innovative practices, and local food systems knowledge, with a focus on climate change adaptation, resilience, and mitigation to enable cross-cultural and cross-sector strategic conversations on how science, technology, and innovation can transform agrifood systems and positively impact their vulnerability to climate change.
Our talk highlighted nadar’s research and work on reliable carbon and deforestation monitoring:
