75% of the world's poor live in rural areas and 2.5 billion people derive their livelihoods from agriculture. However, low agricultural productivity, poor transportation systems and limited policies affect their production and agriculture trade. Today, more than 800 million people worldwide are undernourished, while more than a billion tons of food never make it to the table.
This hackathon seeks solutions to develop new sustainable agricultural practices, support small-scale and family farmers and allow them equal access to land, technology and markets.
