Did you know that by the year 2050 the world’s population is estimated to grow to 10 billion people? This means that by 2050 food demand will increase by almost 40%. The Sustainable Intensification event in Brazil aims to address issues related to food security by focusing on agricultural enhancement. Brazil has a huge agricultural market and is one of the world’s largest exporters of coffee, soybeans, beef and sugarcane. It plays a major role in keeping the world properly fed. Current Brazilian agricultural challenges and opportunities will be reviewed through interactive discussions. This format will also encourage new business connections, partnerships and the opportunity to present future agricultural trends and modernization through new technologies and networking. There will be government, civil, co-operatives, farmers, industry bodies, global businesses and academia attending this event. RainWise is proud to participate in this event showcasing innovative efforts to sustainable agriculture.
