Christina Gravert presented at the Science and Innovation Forum at FAO

When in Rome next week for the Science and Innovation forum at the FAO Christina Gravert will give a talk about behavioral science as a tool to combat climate change.

Christina reveals the essential of her talk: “It is all about understanding the barriers to behavior change. Are there structural problems and people want to change or could they change behavior and decide not to? By using the scientific method, we can accelerate the design of effective polices.”

The Science and Innovation forum in Rome will gather examples of science-based evidence of climate change adaptation and mitigation, technological advancements and innovative solutions suitable for agrifood system actors.

Recognizing the urgent need for action, the session will reunite highly skilled academics, government, private sector and non-governmental organization innovators to share experiences in areas such as behavioural science, circular economy, entrepreneurship, food and policy accelerators, and forest monitoring.
