Applying exponential technologies to achieve the Zero Hunger
World Food Programme Innovation Accelerator, World Food Programme
In the past 2 years, innovation projects have been supported by the UN World Food Programme Innovation Accelerator and were designed using human centered design and lean start-up methodology. During this session, there will be an illustrative showcase of such innovations in developing countries, focusing on reaching Zero Hunger by 2030. In addition, speakers from organisations and companies who have collaborated with WFP, will share best practices on how to achieve the SDGs by creating impact and reaching scale while leveraging the most recent technologies (such as blockchain and artificial intelligence).
