About Powering Agriculture

Powering Agriculture: An Energy Grand Challenge for Development supports the development and deployment of clean energy innovations that increase agriculture productivity and stimulate low carbon economic growth in the agriculture sector of developing countries to help end extreme poverty and extreme hunger.

Powering Agriculture Innovator SunCulture has been selected to participate in this year's Solution Summit. 

Solutions Summit an annual catalytic gathering at United Nations Headquarters in New York during UN General Assembly high-level week in September.

This initiative lifts-up and advances the work of exceptional teams already developing innovative solutions that address the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This year's Solutions Summit will take place from 19-21 September from 12:00-1:00pm each day in the UN SDG Media Zone – a live broadcast event space at the UN focused on the SDGs. This special event will highlight projects advancing objectives of one or more of the 17 SDGs, and will involve in-person accelerator sessions and social media interaction with the selected solution-makers. The first Solutions Summit in 2015 immediately followed the adoption of the SDGs by all UN Member States. It showed that people already have extraordinary solutions in progress to our most complex challenges.

During the Solutions Summit, a group of selected global innovators will give a ‘lightning talk’ outlining their breakthrough efforts to an audience of senior policymakers who have the means to pave solid regulatory foundations, investors who care deeply about long-term change and impact, industry leaders who are able to deploy quickly and at scale, fellow entrepreneurs who can share wisdom on starting up, and members of the general public, including youth, who will bring additional creative insight. The gathering serves as a catalyst to convene resources and talent around solution-makers.
