Agriculture and Natural Resources
Two of the great challenges of the agri-food sector are to generate more sustainable systems – an issue which has becoming increasingly evident in the face of climate change – as well as productive systems, considering that according to figures of the United Nations, every year the world population increases by 83 million inhabitants. Therefore, UC Davis Chile is working on initiatives linked with Smart Agro and on solutions or adaptations to climate change.
Some initiatives of UC Davis Chile´s R+D platform are:
Water property management (surface renewal)
Implementation of a hydrological model of watershed water balances
