Google to Launch a Centre for Climate-Smart Agriculture

By Benoit-Ivan Wansi

Implementing Agenda 2030 is not just a matter for environmentalists and politicians. At least, that is the message being sent by the multinational technology companies attending the United Nations General Assembly, which continues in New York, United States of America. Among them is the American firm Google, which has announced the forthcoming launch of a research centre on climate-smart agriculture (CSA) designed to boost food security in Africa.

The American technology giant Google is not insensitive to the universal problem of food insecurity, which is the key challenge of the United Nations’ 2nd Sustainable Development Goal (SDG2). The American technology giant is therefore planning to set up a research centre on climate-smart agriculture (CSA).
