Transitioning Towards Sustainable Asian Agriculture


With the conclusion of the COP26 summit, major shifts towards achieving net zero have been discussed. There is a significant amount of smallholder farmers who reside within the region, and the transition for these farmers towards non-traditional sustainable farming practices is going to prove challenging for most. This will also impact the dynamics of the regional agricultural supply chains. Supporting this transition requires support from both governmental and independent agencies. This workshopped will discuss the challenges that the agricultural sector faces moving towards in a net-zero sensitive economy. Focusing on investment gaps and strategies that can be adopted to mitigate transitional risks in the sector

Key takeaways from the session are the following:

  • Understood the transformative agents that drive investment in the Asian agricultural sector
  • Understood how private organisations can help the Asian agricultural market maintain sustainable growth post-pandemic and to identify challenges and possible solutions
  • Understood the impacts of Net-zero transition in the Asian agricultural market post COP26
