It's International Food Day
Updated: Aug 17, 2021
Many unintended consequences of Covid-19 have been around food and the lack of it. Rising food insecurity in both developed and developing countries cannot be ignored. As we look to the future, we must use technology and tools available to us, embrace science and come up with innovative solutions, to ensure nobody goes hungry in the future. #SDG2
Our research partnership with the University of Surrey is one example of how we can build back better, after the pandemic. With support from the SPRINT business support programme we are working on a maize mapping and sustainable water use project in Afghanistan.
Key to our innovation is NOT having a need for ground truth data. At a time when international and domestic travel is all but impossible around the world, we are able to continue our research, develop new solutions and solve massive problems without having to leave our own offices and homes.
