“Food security is the global challenge of the century.” This challenge is highly dynamic and continually changing in response to a variety of local and global drivers. Examples of these drivers include a global population that is projected to reach 9.8 billion by 2050, as well as improving economies and shifts towards more resource intensive diets.
Due to a deeply complex and diverse food system with interlocking local-to-global and short-to-long term elements, it is not surprising that the food security challenge is continually evolving and solutions may vary from place-to-place and over time..
To effectively address the food security challenge, scientists in agriculture and allied sciences are reshaping priorities according to the changing scientific and global landscape and developing concepts and solutions for ecological, economic and socially acceptable food production. Advances in scientific knowledge are adding to the evidence base, to change our interpretation of food systems challenges, inspire new ways of working and develop new pathways and priorities for research
Many game changing events and scientific advances, ranging from novel genetic editing technologies and agricultural methods, to improved economic, ecological- and climate modelling techniques, have advanced the agenda across food security. This knowledge is continuing to enter the mainstream, being more widely accepted and integrated across the food sector by agricultural scientists and policy makers.
During the global conference on agriculture and animal sciences, various global events and scientific developments that are likely to significantly change the global food security landscape over the next few years will be discussed
The conference provides a vibrant and active platform for agricultural and animal sciences professionals in academia and research from all over the world to join hands, efforts and skills so that policies could be devised for betterment humanity in general and agrarian community in particular.
I quote, Noble Laureate Amartya Sen, who said that “Doing one thing at a time is never particularly good advice when it comes to economic and social policy.” This is particularly misleading in tackling massive challenges like the prevalence of hunger in the modern world. He called, therefore, for all of us to do many different things – together. It is the same appeal that I leave to you today, so that we can transform agriculture to transform our world.
As Chairman to “International Conference on Agriculture and Animal sciences”, it is my pleasure to invite you to be part of this noble cause during 28-30 August 2019 at University of Hyderabad.
Look forward to meet you at the global event in Hyderabad, a historical city in India!
