About the event

The Center for Transdisciplinary and Sustainability Sciences (IPB University), as the host of Task Force 4, together with the Smart City & Community Innovation Center (Institut Teknologi Bandung), as the host of Task Force 2, with the support of the Center of Indonesian Policy Studies (CIPS) and the Global Solutions Initiative Foundation, invites you to discuss policy solutions in this multistakeholder forum. We call on you to address the just digital transformation of the agriculture sector.

To enhance the environmental and social wellbeing of the agricultural sector, digitalization can function as a catalyst. That is, a just transition aspires for efficiency, global economic inclusiveness, reduction of the environmental footprint and greater resilience against global shocks (whether due to climate change or geopolitical conflicts) among others.

How can the G20 facilitate a just transition that speeds up innovation, addresses all G20 countries equally, involves vulnerable groups and takes data governance issues into account?

Find out the answer through this discussion with the speakers that will address the challenges and debate in digital transformation of the agriculture sector.
