UQ ChangeMakers: The future of farming

A lot of promises have been made globally to achieve the Paris Agreement commitments by 2030, including in the agriculture industry. But how likely are we to see these promises fulfilled? 

As we grapple with the twin challenges of a growing global population and a changing climate, we know farming will need to change. We need to produce more with less: less water, less energy, less land, and fewer emissions. We also need to find ways to build resilience against extreme weather events caused by climate change.

Hear from our ChangeMakers, UQ alumni and experts on the challenges we’re facing now and solutions as we look to the future. How do we achieve a carbon-neutral livestock sector? Could we transform crop protection with mRNA vaccines for plants? And how can we harness research and innovative technology to improve global food security?
