In an era where environmental concerns are paramount and natural resources are fast depleting, prioritising sustainability while striving for economic advancement has become a key imperative for responsible growth. The agriculture sector plays a pivotal role in actualising the sustainable development agenda. While this sector is the primary source of income for millions of farmers and continues to satisfy the food and fiber needs of a rapidly growing population, it is also the largest user of natural resources. Ensuring long-term sustainable access to food and other agricultural produce for a rapidly growing human population will require stakeholders across the agriculture value chain to focus on initiatives that safeguard farmers’ economic needs, preserve natural resources such as soil and water, protect the environment and adapt to climate change. By prioritizing sustainable agriculture development, we can establish the groundwork for a resilient and thriving future for both people and the planet.
Against this backdrop, FICCI, is organizing 3rd Edition of the Sustainable Agriculture Awards and Summit: Efficiency, Inclusiveness & Resilience, on 30th November 2023 at FICCI Federation House, New Delhi. The upcoming conference aims at providing a common platform to all stakeholders to outline the opportunities in the sustainable agriculture sector and deliberate on actions that are required at the policy and operational level to unleash the potential of sustainable farming practices in the country. The Summit will be attended by CEO’s and Business Heads of Agri and Food Industry, Policy makers, Multilateral and bilateral institutions, NGOs, Academicians, Researchers, embassies, financial institutions, Development organizations etc.
