Join the Institute for Sustainability, Energy, and Environment (iSEE) at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and the Council on Food, Agricultural and Resource Economics (C-FARE) for this event, which is endorsed by the Agricultural and Applied Economics Association (AAEA) and the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE).
Advancing environmental sustainability of our agriculture and food systems while continuing to increase agricultural productivity is a critical national priority. Improvements in technology, incentives from markets and appropriate policies combined with systems-oriented thinking are crucial to achieving this transformation. The session is intended to highlight this pressing challenge and discuss strategies for addressing it from different disciplinary perspectives.
