CORNELL BUSINESS IMPACT SYMPOSIUM 2021
Resilience through sustainability is needed more than ever. As the line between business and social and environmental issues is disappearing, the private sector is learning how it can be a productive partner in promoting solutions to issues such a social and environmental justice, food insecurity, climate change, supply chain transparency, overconsumption, and more. They are coming to the realization that addressing these issues through core business strategies is not only good for society but also good for business. Attend one or all of the panels to hear from those leading efforts to create a more resilient world.
As climate change accelerates and disasters like the pandemic, drought, and hurricanes become more prevalent, global agricultural and food systems must adapt to survive, working towards resiliency and sustainability. This panel will focus on Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) a relatively new, high-tech sector of agriculture with a bright future and its role in the evolution of agriculture.
A distinguished panel representing multiple aspects of the CEA ecosystem, including greenhouse production, vertical farming, urban agriculture, CEA consulting, and controlled environment fruit production, will explore how their technology helps create a more robust and resilient food system. Student host: Cornell Sustainability Consulting club.
Time: 8:00 PM EDT
In the past year, researchers across the globe have shifted from primarily face-to-face to a variety of remote data collection modes. This has resulted in a new research paradigm that embraces modern digital solutions. However, evidence on the trade-offs between different remote surveying methods, and data quality constraints, remains limited. We are bringing together expert research organizations to share their findings on questions related to remote research approaches.
During this webinar on April 14, 2021, the Busara Center for Behavioral Economics, Innovations for Poverty Action (IPA), the Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL), and IDinsight will take you through emerging methods research findings on:
- What sort of response rates can you expect and how can you increase these?
- How can you increase representativeness of your remote research? Specifically, how can you effectively reach different segments of the population, such as women?
- How do different remote survey methods such as phone vs. SMS compare?
- How can we ensure high-quality data when it is collected remotely?
There will be 30 minutes for Q&A following the presentations.
