Policy Assessment

In addition to the Sustainable Agtech Challenge, we will be conducting a bolt-on policy assessment. 

The innovation policy assessment is the capstone to the agtech challenge, highlighting the 3-5 startups that were selected, the food system problems they are attempting to solve, related market and policy settings. 

The deliverable is a white paper with the purpose of informing policymakers in the region about gaps, barriers, limitations, and opportunities to develop innovative agtech solutions that help fight climate change and advance relevant Sustainable Development Goals to meet the goals of Agenda 2030, such as SDG 2 End hunger

(via sustainable food production), SDG 6 Clean water, SDG 7 Affordable and clean energy, SDG 12 Responsible consumption and production, SDG 13 Climate action, and SDG 15 Sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems.

This process is led by Universidad Austral.
