SustainableAG Asia Challenge: Five Different Challenges by Rabobank

Geschreven op 30-8-2019 - Erik van Erne. Geplaatst in Agenda, Duurzaam Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

Asia’s population is expected to increase from 4.6 billion to 5.3 billion in 2050 according to World Population Prospects 2019, United Nations.

With limited arable land and natural resources available, improving food production will be key to meet the increased demand for food and changing consumer preferences.

As agri-food supply chains are increasingly interconnected – from input companies to farmers, traders, food companies and retailers – data and innovation are key to meet the increased demand for food.

Better data collection, analysis and sharing will improve the integrity of the agri-food supply chain. Moreover, data-driven technology will enable farmers and food & agri companies to make more informed decisions, triggering new smart farming and production techniques, and finding new ways of distribution.

With the vast majority of the smallholder farmers living in Asia, agtech solutions will enable farmers to improve their crop production and access to markets, and in turn improve their incomes.

Against this backdrop, Rabobank, a global leader in food and agri banking, is organizing the SustainableAg Asia Challenge. Agtech companies with innovative solutions that promote the integrity in agri-food supply chains in Asia are invited to apply. Solutions could be in the area of farming practices, inclusivity of smallholder farmers, traceability, food safety, data integrity & sharing as well as improving access to markets.

SustainableAg Asia Challenge is looking for solutions which can address the following challenges within the farm-to-market supply chain
Sustainable Farming Practices.?

Sustainable Farming Practices: Agricultural activity has a huge impact on the environment. It is responsible for 25% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions, accounts for 70% of global freshwater use, and results in changes in land use from natural ecosystems, i.e. deforestation. How might we support sustainable farming practices and drive better environmental outcomes?

Inclusivity of Smallholder Farmers: Smallholder farmers represent 85% of the world’s farmers. However, they face a variety of problems, from lack of access to finances to lack of awareness of good agricultural practices. How might we empower smallholder farmers with technology and data to enhance their farming operations, and increase their incomes?

Traceability and Food Safety: There are potential threats to the integrity of agri-food products at every stage in the supply chain due to gaps in protocols, human error, and sometimes unethical practices like corruption or adulteration. How might we use technology to ensure the integrity of agri-food products at each stage of the supply chain, and assure consumers of their provenance?

Data Integrity and Sharing: Data needs to be collected in manners that is reliable, seamless and inexpensive. Through data sharing, we look to unlock creative means of combining data for new forms of verified intelligence across the agricultural supply chain. How might we collect credible data and verified intelligence from the supply chain, and enable safe and transparent data sharing?

Access to New Markets: Agricultural supply chains have fundamentally depended on geographical proximity and relationship-building between stakeholders. Digital platforms can open up new opportunities through innovative models of trade. How might we use technology to simplify trade processes to enter new markets, improve efficiency, and capture value for the different stakeholders?
