Agriculture/food security is complex and requires various solutions, multiple stakeholders, and a strategic long-term approach. At the same time, we need to start thinking about different ideas or ways around ensuring food security. Whilst tech is not a silver bullet, a hackathons can be a good way to bring new ideas, smart people together to think of innovative ways to approach the problem.
We are excited to have a multi-stakeholder approach with government, private sector and tech companies in this approach. We have identified four over-arching challenges in the sector and five problem statements based on the challenges to form the basis of this data driven hackathon.
