It will showcase the latest advancements and trends in the vertical farming space and promote food security in the region. With the UAE Ministry of Climate Change and Environment (MOCCAE) confirming its support, the show’s organisers are certain that the event will open doors to new opportunities for participating organisations.
MOCCAE is responsible for developing and implementing policies and initiatives that promote environmental protection, sustainable development and dealing with the effects of climate change.
