Biotechnology : Changing lives in Asia-Pacific | Central Rice Research Institute, India (Rice)

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 agricultural/crops sector and the lives its changing for the better.

Working to Eradicate Hunger, Malnutrition and Poverty in the Philippines

In Asia and the Pacific, the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) is working with member countries to leverage breakthroughs in information and communication technologies (ICT) to fight hunger, improve nutrition and counter the effects of climate change and extreme weather events that can devastate farmers and their crops. In the Philippines, a country prone to typhoons, aerial drones are taking to the sky to map out at-risk areas of agricultural land to mitigate risk. This innovative practice is also able to quickly assess damages when a disaster strikes. For further information contact Allan [.] Dow [at] fao.org and follow us on Twitter @FAOAsiaPacific
