The Future of Agriculture: A conversation revisited
British Columbia has experienced a year of monumental change. From climate change events across the province to business planning in a post-COVID era, how has the agriculture sector been affected? One year after the inaugural Future of Agriculture webinar, we reunite our speakers for a conversation on moving forward from COVID and the impact of climate change on the industry. The speakers discuss supply chains, climate adaptation, technology and trade, and how B.C.’s agri-food industry can work towards a stronger future.
