5. 1 -min Pitch (50 words)
The agriculture sector is a victim of climate change and is considered to be a reasonable contributor towards greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that have led to climate change. We need to prepare farmers for the adoption of climate-smart agriculture to attain sustainable production and reduced emissions.
We are interested in collaborating with various institutions, organizations and companies working in the field of climate-smart agriculture and transitioning local farmers to sustainable agriculture.
