Biotechnology : Changing lives in Asia-Pacific | Coastal Aquaculture Research and Development Regional Center 1, Thailand (Shrimp)

Meeting the nutritional needs of a growing world population – one expected to exceed ten billion – by 2050 – and do so through improved, efficient and sustainable food systems, is a major task, yet one which the world must take on. While recent breakthroughs in biotechnologies in the food and agriculture sectors have been impressive, applying them at ground level have been more challenging. Part of the reason is affordability – the vast majority of our food is produced by smallholder farmers, fishers and pastoralists – many of whom are poor and often themselves food insecure. FAO in Asia-Pacific, in collaboration with partners in the public and private sectors, has taken a closer look at various non-GMO biotechnologies and their successes.  This video looks at work in the fisheries sector and the lives its changing for the better.
