Agriculture is one of the economic sectors where France occupies a top ten position among nations worldwide. Although innovation and productivity have enabled it to perform well, this sector is now being directly affected by upheaval on a global scale.
Agriculture is both responsible for (in its use of intense production and breeding) and a victim of climate change. Despite being production-based, its commitment to an agroecological approach is being consolidated, paying attention to consumers who are increasingly aware of issues relating to respect for the environment and animal well-being.
Furthermore, the issue of demographic transition is becoming increasingly relevant with an ageing, shrinking population of farmers against a population of 8 billion humans to feed, a number which will reach 10 billion by 2050! These challenges are combined with the impact of the health crisis, which has forced people in the sector to embark on the economic, environmental, digital and social transitions required to establish the agriculture of the future.
