Over 500 delegates are set to discuss trust in digital agriculture and explore ways to build it during the third annual convention of CGIAR Platform for Big Data in Agriculture.

“The global calls for digital trust are intensifying even as the need for comprehensive, multifaceted solutions for global food security grows,” said Brian King, Coordinator of the BIG DATA Platform. “We need to increase production, but we also need to preserve and renew ecosystems, manage climate extremes, and deal with depleting soil and land resources. Trustworthy digital solutions may be the most important tool we have to rise to the challenge–if we can build them.”
