Costa Rica, a leader in sustainability since the 1980's, was recently recognized by

the United Nations as a "Champion of the Earth."

Join us in Costa Rica! 

Located between the Tropic of Cancer and Capricorn, contains ecological rich surroundings: forests, waters, soils, flora and fauna. Its tropical climate is modified by its geographical reliefmountains, plains, and plateaus and is positioned within the Central American isthmus and the influence of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Although Costa Rica is a small territory, it holds 5% of the earth's biodiversity which is protected by the National System of Areas Conservation, preserving 25% of its national territory.

IFAMA 2022 aims to explore the challenges and opportunities that are emerging with the introduction of digitization and technology in the agri-food sector. We will examine the development of new and sustainable technologies that are crucial to mitigating environmental and climate challenges impacting the future of food. Such technologies are complex and often intertwined with new business models, value chains, industry standards and institutions.

INCAE Business School and Earth University—the leading academic institutions in Central America are partnering to bring the 2022 World Conference to beautiful Costa Rica!
