TZH 03 - Can biotech benefit smallholder farmers worldwide?

In this week’s episode of TARGET: Zero Hunger, we take a closer look at a set of tools that in many ways influence what the future of agriculture will look like. And that set of tools is biotechnology.  

 

What kind of biotechnologies are available today and how can they benefit smallholder farmers in the developing world? In February this year, some 400 scientist, farmers, policy makers and industry representatives gathered at the International Symposium on Agricultural Biotechnologies held at FAO headquarters in Rome to answer that question. In this episode, we hear voices from the symposium and review the key issues and technologies at the heart of the global conversation about biotech’s role in sustainable food systems and nutrition.
