Food Security, Poverty and Sustainability

      In consideration to the ever increasing population and the proportionate supply of nutrients, the session of Food security, Poverty and Sustainability, has been included in the session for keynote and speaker discussion. In an era of scarcity it is becoming increasingly important to address production and consumption jointly because of the linkages between the two. The transition to a more sustainable food chain cannot be met by concentrating on approaches aiming only at productivity increases - the possibilities of sufficiency oriented research have to be explored as well. There should be open opportunities for transition to sustainable and equitable food systems through a systemic approach founded on a better understanding of socio-ecological systems. So far the focus of research and policy has been on the supply-side by providing technological innovations, however social innovations in the domain of production are as important as technological ones. The core areas to be emphasized in the discussions are:

  • Food processing, distribution and marketing
  • Scope of local food systems : Their concepts and impact
  • Critical role of animal science research in Food Security
  • Critical role of animal science research in Food Security
  • Role of plant breeding in food security
  • Green Revolution
  • Potential implications of Entomophagy for the global food system
  • Sustainable, secure and resilient production of food
  • Food security and rice production
  • Economic vitality
