How is technology helping revolutionise agriculture in the Global South?
Hi, I’m Azeem Azhar. I convene Exponential View to help us understand how our societies and political economy will change under the force of rapidly accelerating technologies. Every Wednesday, I do this in Charts of the Week.
📢 Two announcements before we continue…
One, we want to share exceptional brands with our Exponential View audience. If you’ve got a product or service you think we’d love complete this form and we’ll get in touch to discuss collaboration opportunities.
