Cultivating changes through transformative energy solutions in agri-food systems in emerging economies (IEEE Young Professionals)

Agriculture, forming the backbone of many emerging economies, has a pressing need for sustainable energy solutions. The session aims to explore the potential renewable energy pathways that can be harnessed to make agriculture more sustainable and resilient. We aim to catalyze meaningful, action-oriented dialogues that pave the way for a resilient and sustainable future in the agricultural domain, harmonising global solutions with local needs. We also aim to discuss supporting mechanisms and processes available to strengthen renewable energy integration to the agricultural sector. As a result, we will have different stakeholders contributing to this session.
