INNOVATIONS IN AQUACULTURE

New Transparency and New Species 

sponsored by DNV GL

 

The future of aquaculture is bright! Join our discussion with seafood producer representatives about how innovative the aquaculture sector has become. Find out how the reproduction of certain species under controlled processes can in some cases help overcome the “endangered” status.

 

Get familiar with the new GLOBALG.A.P. Aquaculture standard version 5 with the innovative new criteria on animal welfare and the extension of the social assessment.

 

Learn about the new consumer label for aquaculture and its accompanying platform GGN.org, which enhances transparency for consumers by providing profiles of the farms that have produced the labelled seafood product.

CAPACITY BUILDING & G.A.P.

Growing G.A.P. Culture from the Inside Out

sponsored by Syngenta Foundation/ Farmforce

 

A G.A.P. culture emerges from practices instilled through accurate knowledge and acute awareness performed on such a wide scale and over a long period that they become native and intuitive for the community. Steady reflection and improvement contribute to applying G.A.P. by intuition, which subsequently leads to a sustainable culture of good agricultural practices that is passed on from generation to generation.

 

In this session our stakeholders will introduce their experiences and challenges in establishing G.A.P. culture as well as present the tools and practical approaches that can be used to sustainably motivate people to change their behavior and apply good practices.

 

After an introduction of G.A.P. culture, the session discussion will explore exciting approaches ranging from education of youth leading to solving certified farmers’ daily challenges.

 

Join us for an animated and inspiring session that examines the critical issues in your daily work and how to improve them sustainably. Gain insights into G.A.P. culture and connect with GLOBALG.A.P. stakeholders that are experienced and active in this field.

FOR A CLIMATE-RESILIENT FUTURE

The Role of the GLOBALG.A.P. Community in Advancing Climate-Smart Agriculture

sponsored by BASF

 

The COP 21 Paris Agreement highlights the critical need for climate-smart agriculture that reduces emissions, sequesters carbon and improves farmers’ adaptation to the impacts of climate change. What are the opportunities within the GLOBALG.A.P. community to advance climate-smart agriculture?  What is GLOBALG.A.P.’s role in supporting this advancement?

Imagine this: A multilateral supply chain solution that satisfies individual requirements and gets rid of duplication.

 

GLOBALG.A.P. has brought together all the existing social platforms to discuss how to drive the change toward making this scenario a reality in the near future.

 

Join us to explore:

  • The different systems and solutions social schemes can use to collaborate.

RISKS IN LIVESTOCK PRODUCTION

Mitigation through Certification and Data Collection

 

Speakers will address the major risks of using antibiotics in livestock and how the market is responding. Can farm certification help to mitigate such a risk? Learn how new data collection through farm management systems can be used as an indicator for risk on farms and as input for more efficient processes in the future of livestock production.

CROPS FOR PROCESSING

The Standard for the Future

 

The Crops for Processing (CfP) Standard covers the growing of plants and crops used for further processing, such as cooking, freezing, and juicing as well as for feed.

 

In the first version, the standard is aligned with the GLOBALG.A.P. Integrated Farm Assurance Standard, with the two key differences being the risk-based approach to food safety and the auditing rules. How does this affect a producer that supplies produce for both the fresh market as well as for processing? How will the auditing rules work?

 

Future developments of the standard will include working with SAI Platform and incorporation of the Farm Sustainability Assessment elements as well as the use of metrics for auditing purposes.

THE METRICS OF IMPROVEMENT

Measuring and Monitoring Continual Improvement for Safe and Sustainable Agriculture

sponsored by greenfence

Businesses throughout the agricultural supply chain increasingly seek data about farm-level activity in addition to certifications to manage progress toward food safety and sustainability objectives. Our keynote speaker and panelists will explore what data is needed, how it can be collected and authenticated, and how it can be delivered to businesses. We will explore how GLOBALG.A.P. can participate in verifying and delivering data that supports companies in meeting their improvement goals.

USING BIG DATA IN CERTIFICATION

Benefits, Challenges, and Prospects

sponsored by greenfence

Gathering large amounts of data and applying advanced data analytics methods to accurately process these data sets can lead to better insights and decisions, which can result in greater efficiency, lower costs, and reduced risk. But can big data and predictive analytics actually prevent high risk events such as the horsemeat scandal from occurring? How can big data offer additional capacity and flexibility to the established auditor system in private sector?

 

Big data promises to generate such a high level of transparency in the production chain that some think it will render certification redundant. Is this scenario true? And if so, do we need some sort of certification of algorithms to ensure that the analytics process is accurate, reliable, and uncorrupted? Is there a small data alternative to support the current practice of certification?
