Author | Tania Alonso Cascallana The agricultural sector is the largest employer in the world. It is estimated to provide work and income to at least 40% of the existing population and is considered to be the main livelihood of the poorest and most vulnerable communities.In the coming decades, agriculture will face significant challenges. On the one hand, feeding a constantly growing population, which will mainly be based in urban areas. On the other, mitigating its impact on the environment in order to slow down the effects of climate change. And, lastly, combating the consequences of the latter, which will have a major impact on developing countries.One of the solutions put forward to tackle this situation is to transform the sector. Designing a smart and intelligent style of agriculture, which reduces its environmental impact, and improves the situation of the communities working the land: climate-smart agriculture.
