“Science, technology and innovation can help us to really switch from the bad boy [agriculture] to the saver, because agriculture right now, yes, it does emit 30 percent of the greenhouse gas, but is the only sector that also sequesters, which we haven't yet grasped in our head how much is sequestering, but what we know is that if we transform towards better approaches, we can increase our sequestration capacity, because when you think about carbon, the sequestration happens only in soil, in plants, and oceans.”

STORYLINE:
Ismahane Elouafi, Chief Scientist of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), said that with the appropriate use of science, technology, and innovation, we can grow food sustainably with less environmental impact.

Ahead of the upcoming FAO Science and Innovation Forum to be held from 16-20 October at FAO’s headquarters in Rome, Italy, Elouafi discusses the important role science, technology, and innovation play in transforming the agrifood systems to be part of the climate solution.

The year’s Forum with the theme “Science and innovation for climate action” will focus on enhancing the accessibility of technologies, innovative practices, and local knowledge in agrifood systems for climate change adaptation, resilience, and mitigation.

Agriculture is a contributor to the current climate crisis, but it can be transformed to become part of the solution, explains Elouafi.

SOUNDBITE (English), Ismahane Elouafi, Chief Scientist of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), “Science, technology and innovation can help us to really switch from the bad boy [agriculture] to the saver because agriculture right now, yes, it does emit 30 percent of the greenhouse gas, but is the only sector that also sequesters, which we haven't yet grasped in our head how much is sequestering, but what we know is that if we transform towards better approaches, we can increase our sequestration capacity, because when you think about carbon, the sequestration happens only in soil, in plants, and oceans.”

FAO's Science and Innovation Forum is a unique global knowledge-sharing event to develop actionable solutions in response to climate change.

The aim? To achieve more inclusive, efficient, and resilient agrifood systems through innovation.

SOUNDBITE (English), Ismahane Elouafi, Chief Scientist of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), “From technology innovation to financial innovation, to institutional innovation, to policy innovation, so the whole spectrum of innovation, and we hope really that the debate between the different stakeholders will bring to bear, what do we know now, what could we scale up now, and where should we invest in the future to have better science and evidence base for policymaking and for the transformation of agrifood systems.”

One of the sessions will be dedicated to the complementarity of science and traditional knowledge. It will tackle how Indigenous youth on the frontlines of climate change are combining their traditional food and knowledge systems with innovative approaches to address challenges in food production, nutrition, environment, and livelihoods.

SOUNDBITE (English), Ismahane Elouafi, Chief Scientist of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), “We have a session dedicated to understand better the Indigenous knowledge, the local knowledge, the small-scale producer’s knowledge, and we have a session called “Two-Eyed Seeing” to really dive into this kind of knowledges and discuss how could we bring it to be known, to be respected, and to be used as peer-to-peer learning across the globe.”

Part of the World Food Forum, the FAO Science and Innovation discussions will be opened by the FAO Director General, QU Dongyu, and a diverse group of Ministers and global leaders.

The World Food Forum includes other flagship events like the Global Youth Forum and the Hand-in-Hand Investment Forum.

The World Food Forum will foster dialogue among relevant stakeholders with one goal - moving the needle for food security to achieve a better food future for all, leaving no one behind.
