The inaugural conference on regenerative agriculture has been held today in Belgrade, organized by FIC Serbia in collaboration with the EBRD.

Despite the familiar concept, many queries have surfaced regarding its role in bolstering resilience against the palpable climate changes, conserving biodiversity, safeguarding the environment, and ensuring sustainable food production for upcoming generations.

He emphasised that these practices are vital in addressing the challenges of the food sector in the 21st century. Additionally, Bouriot reminded that the European Union has committed to ambitious goals in sustainable food production, influencing not only the EU but also the countries exporting to its market.
