Harvest the Future is an annual gathering designed as a platform for sharing the latest advancements and initiatives in small scale climate-smart agriculture. Each year a diverse group of experts and distinguished thinkers will explore the challenges and opportunities climate-smart agriculture offers to enhance human well-being while protecting the environment. This inaugural symposium will focus on important projects in aquaponics that are providing sustainable food sources as well as jobs and hope for communities that struggle under difficult circumstances. Keynote speakers will also address issues of nutrition and health, climate action, and poverty.

Join Harvest the Future in this unique collaborative environment to share important knowledge and expertise across academic disciplines and geographic boundaries. Harvest the Future is an opportunity to network and to be involved in projects that offers substantive benefits for people and the planet during a time of unprecedented environmental change.

Innovations in Climate-Smart Agriculture for Small-Scale Producers

An immersion symposium on innovative solutions for sustainable, small-scale food production. Come learn about new technologies that address:

  • Food Security
  • Nutrition and Health
  • Climate Change
  • Income Generation
  • Explore aquaponics and other intensive, climate-smart interventions, as well as renewable energy and water harvesting solutions, and how they can be scaled up in a wide variety of development settings.

Experience grassroots production and vanguard adaptations among smallholder farmers, fisherfolk, schools, youth groups, women-led cooperatives, groups of disabled farmers, and within a juvenile detention center. Join a field trip to see these pioneering solutions in action, and learn from experts who are making them work in Latin America, Africa and the Middle East.

Engage with colleagues and discover collaborative opportunities to advance shared objectives and programs that rely on healthy, resilient and productive food systems. Interact and network with private- and public-sector leaders and development practitioners from around the world.
