The event will highlight participation from Better Cotton Farmers from Türkiye, India, Mozambique, Pakistan, Tajikistan, and the US, facilitating direct engagement with farming communities.

Topics like social aspects of cotton farming, women’s empowerment, farmer financing, and the impact of carbon markets will be discussed, along with the evolving legislative landscape and the importance of data in enhancing cotton supply chains. Insights from the 2023 India Impact Report and the latest on traceability will also be shared.
