Join the conversation! Global Food Systems

December 7, 2021

Across the world billions of people go hungry or lack food containing sufficient nutrients. Over the years, technologies have helped to make food systems more sustainable and healthy. Unfortunately, challenges arise when trying to scale and diffuse these technologies.

WIPO GREEN’s Peter Oksen along with a panel of industry experts will talk about the multi-layered system of innovation, dynamics around research and development (R&D) and trade around technologies in food industries.

Visit the WIPO GREEN Database “Feeding 9bn” collection to find out about some of the existing food security needs and technologies.
