Socratus brings data, design and public problem-solving methods to the solution of 'wicked' problems such as how do we recast the large fertilizer subsidy that serves farmers and ecology better, or what is required to scale natural farming in India that considers the various stakeholders.
India’s food system is a theme of intense engagement for Socratus. It is both a significant contributor to climate change and severely exposed to its effects.
The Food systems team takes a food system approach to problems that concern agriculture, nutrition, farmer incomes and climate change. It is a fast growing area of work for Socratus and so far, we have organized convenings on farmer incomes, fertilizer subsidy and MSP.
