Smart Agriculture for Smart Cities: How data and scenario analysis could take vertical farming mainstream // All over the globe, cities are turning ‘smart’ and embedding sensors, information management systems, and automation. Unfortunately, most ‘smart cities’ exclude agriculture and food in their dialogue and development. This presentation will ask: “Can a City Really be Smart Without Agriculture”?
Henry will bring his knowledge of the spectrum of urban and peri-urban agriculture models and discuss how new scenario analysis tools can help cities understand the potential impact of strategies to make cities smarter through data-driven agriculture planning, management, and distribution. A discussion on lessons learned in working with cities on urban and vertical farming will be discussed as well as best practices for engaging them.
