Meeting the goals of eradicating hunger and poverty by 2030, while addressing the threat of climate change, will require a profound worldwide transformation in the type of energy used in food and agriculture systems. Agriculture and food systems emit between 21-37 per cent of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and consume 30 per cent of the world’s available energy, with more than 70% occurring beyond the farmgate. This podcast would be an hour long podcast discussion hosted by Kristina Skierka, CEO of Power for All with an expert in food systems from a leading impact investing foundation. The podcast would have a threefold objective:
- The Potential of Distributed Renewable Energy in farming smarter and reducing emissions while still providing nutritious food for all
- The importance of driving investment dollars to power global food systems for quick deployment, significant savings, increased incomes through productive use, and strengthened more resilient local food systems.
- Discussing inspirational impact stories from the ground
