About Urban Agri World (UAW 2024)

At COP28 UAE Declaration on Sustainable Agriculture, Resilient Food Systems, and Climate Action, the leaders from 134 countries have mobilized more than $2.5 billion to begin addressing agriculture-related climate issues including many initiatives towards agriculture related research. Countries are putting food systems transformation and livelihoods of small-scale farmers at the top of their agenda. 

Many countries and companies are expressing strong interest in vertical farming business and urban agriculture. It is a solution to the weather and pests problems, food security, water, power and land requirements, climate change and environmental preservation challenges. Commercialization of vertical farming is catching on in Asia, Europe, USA, and now Africa. Many private companies are interested in growing crops in hydroponic, aquaponics and aeroponics systems in warehouses, greenhouses, containers and high skyscrapers. There is also a burgeoning interest in the production of medicinal plants in vertical farms following the new rulings on cannabis production for medicinal use. UAW 2024 will touch on the pressing issues pertaining to progressive farming developments for the urban, indoor and vertical farming industry.

The industry has seen massive growth. The Global Vertical Farming Plant Factory market is poised for significant growth between 2023 and 2031. The global vertical farming market is estimated to be USD 5.1 billion in 2023 and is projected to reach USD 15.3 billion by 2028.

Join us at UAW2024 as we deliberate on emerging technologies to unlock the potential for agriculture, growing agri food capacity, security and resilience globally and in Africa in particular.
