Sustainable Agriculture and Climate Change - Session 1

Conveners: Roy Posmanik, ARO/Volcani, and Ilan Stavi, Dead Sea and Arava Science Center

By 2050, the world’s population is expected to grow to 9.7 billion. Eco-friendly, sustainable but still intensive agricultural practices will be required to meet global demands for grains, vegetables, fruits, and livestock production. Facing climate change and the global challenge of food security, ecological sustainability, water management, heat resistance and other related topics are now vital areas of research. The Sustainable Agriculture session will examine how thought paradigms once unique to deserts and drylands affect food production and regenerative agriculture in arid and non-arid regions across the planet. Selected talks will present new approaches farmers can adopt to increase production, enhance ecosystem services, and improve resilience to biotic and/or abiotic stresses—especially those related to climate change.
