Food & Agriculture

Climate crises and unpredictable weather continue to haunt the sustainability of food systems. We seek new innovative solutions to transform and improve the way we plant, produce and distribute our foods more sustainably, with methodologies and solutions that help to improve affordability, access, nutrients, as well as reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and waste, thereby, ensuring food security in both urban and rural communities.

Connectivity is crucial for better economic and social access between urban and rural communities, which needs to be balanced with a low-carbon transportation and logistics system to ensure greenhouse gas emissions are reduced. We seek new ideas as new services, platforms, and technologies to support the growing demand for sustainable mobility and supply chains.

The ocean is critical to feed the population, regulate the climate, and generate most of the oxygen on earth. An ideal blue economy resonates with the sustainable use of ocean resources for economic growth and improved livelihoods while conserving the health of the ocean ecosystem. We seek innovative solutions to utilize marine resources sustainably to ensure the welfare of coastal communities.
