Sustainable smart cities, transport systems and agriculture

Climate change is a key challenge of the 21st century that will affect all aspects of life. Agriculture and forestry must adapt to climate changes and may help to mitigate them. The complex relationships between agricultural and forestry practices, economics, environmental sciences, and policy call for computational tools to help climate actors. This talk will discuss some challenges in the development of computational tools for climate-smart agriculture and forestry.
