(REF 22015) The Enabling Environment for Doing Science Right: discussing the requirements for bringing locally relevant agricultural innovations in a responsible manner - Convened by CLIM-EAT

Science and innovation can play a critical role in transforming our food systems, particularly in making our food systems more sustainable and climate-resilient. However, research for agricultural development and innovation is often fragmented, overly supply-based and not sufficiently adapted to local circumstances, resulting in an implementation gap. At the same time, the policy and regulatory frameworks currently in place can hamper equal access to knowledge and technology transfers and disadvantage countries in the Global South.

In this session, we want to have a discussion between actors from across the governance structure (institutional, private sector and community) and research bodies and businesses engaged in agricultural innovations, with actors from the Global North and South, on how agricultural innovation can be better adapted to local circumstances and what enabling environments are needed for an inclusive, effective, and sustainable science mechanism.

Speakers include: The Netherlands (TBC), UAE (TBC), Columbia University, Both ENDS, DSM, Bayer, and INRA Morocco.
