Farms. Food. Future.
Connecting Farmers to the Food Systems Summit
In this month’s edition we continue to focus on the first ever UN Food Systems Summit and we’ll be hearing from IFAD's President Gilbert Houngbo and hearing the messages for the Summit from farmers living in developing countries. We talk to Ertharin Cousin, one of the official Champions of the Summit, CEO and President of Food Systems for the Future, and ex-head of the World Food Programme. Also we’ll have Jonathan Davies, lead on agriculture at the International Union for the Conservation of Nature. Both of them will talk about how we can make food systems work better for people and nature. Coming up there’s news on aquaponics – how it can be combined with vertical farming. And the latest on technological innovation in pig farming from China. We talk to one of our newest Recipes for Change chefs Roy Caceres from Colombia and what inspires him. Plus the fine people at Too Good To Go tell us how we can all use their app to cut down on food waste. And there’s the final part of our Rural Voices series. This is Farms. Food. Future. – a podcast that’s Good for You, Good for the Planet and Good for Farmers brought to you by the International Fund for Agricultural Development.
