UAE going towards increasing local food production

Salmon farming on land, Fitbit-style devices for cattle, and acres of greenhouses producing vegetables in a Mediterranean environment — the face of farming in the UAE is changing fast.

With a 70 percent increase in global food demand expected by 2050, and climate change affecting agricultural production, innovation is proving the key to easing food insecurity.

A campaign by the Ministry of Climate Change and Environment aims to unite businesses with innovation and funding to tackle such issues.

Local farms are at the heart of the National Dialogue for Food Security, which will be supported to become major suppliers in the UAE to help reduce the reliance on imported goods.
