Global Agri Connect

Agriculture Research and Practice is continuously aligning to the perceived need of the farmers and the environment. Though several technologies and innovations experiment demonstrated and piloted, `technology adoption at scale` is not forthcoming to the dismay of various stakeholders. This can seriously disable small and marginal farmers` ability to face the harsh effects of climate change. It is time to realign and refocus on ` Technology Dissemination and Deployment` from Technology Development.

National Skills Foundation of India (NSFI) organizing the 7th edition of Global Agri Connect  (GAC)to bring together key stakeholders, policy makers, and decision makers on one platform to identify and chart pathways for adoption; customization, replication and upscale of technologies and innovations in Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA). Krishi Jagran/Agriculture World is the Media Partner. For more information and participation, interested can contact via KJ website.

The thrust areas of GAC 2018 are Renewable Energy in Climate Smart Agriculture- means & making; women at the short end of climate change discourse and action. Corporate bodies and their contribution to climate resilience. Research & Evidence on climate change impact - The Solution Perspective.
