Innovative concepts for small-scale farming systems world-wide

One important booth in this regard was the International Special “Acre of Knowledge”, with a dedicated focus on development cooperation. DLG jointly organised this Special with GIZ and the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO). In total, 17 co-exhibitors from seven countries presented their products and services and used the occasion for intensive discussions with potential clients and international experts.

The products presented included some addressing soil protection, storage technologies, water preparation facilities, 3D-printers for spare parts, some in the range of E-mobility and sensor technologies for various purposes. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) served as a technical partner for the Special by inviting co-exhibitors and supporting the Special´s Forum.

The Forum Acre of Knowledge gave the floor for 57 presenters from many countries to inform visitors about products and discuss approaches which were already in use or could potentially be used in future development cooperation.
