International Innovation Award for Sustainable Food and Agriculture

The call is now closed!

Thank you for submitting your application to the 2021 International Innovation Award for Sustainable Food and Agriculture.

Innovation is changing the way food is produced, processed, traded and consumed and building more resilient and robust food systems. Both digital technologies and innovative practices for growing food have the potential to transform food systems, providing smallholder farmers with a better future, making farming more sustainable and ultimately closing the digital gap between developed and developing countries.

Since 2018, FAO and the Federal Government of Switzerland encourage innovation by publically recognizing best practices through the International Innovation Award for Sustainable Food and Agriculture. The award does not only acknowledge digital innovation, but also new or existing products or practices that are used in a specific context, to increase effectiveness, competitiveness and resilience.

Following the successful first edition of the International Innovation Award for Sustainable Agriculture, FAO and the Government of Switzerland have launched for the second time the International Innovation Award for Sustainable Food Systems.

Come and join us on 1 October 2021 at 5 CEST and discover the winners of the 2021 edition!
