A challenge of our generation is the creation of an efficient system providing sustainable food and fuel from the land whilst also preserving biodiversity and ecosystems. This comprehensive volume covers different aspects of microbial biotechnology and its management in sustainable agriculture for food security and improved human health.

The book comprises four sections: Endophytes and Mycorrhizae, Microbial Diversity and Plant Protection, Microbial Functions and Biotechnology, and Microbes and the Environment.

Agricultural Biotechnology and Food Security Very little transgenic seed material has been grown in the developing world. Argentina, Brazil, China, Egypt, India, and South Africa account for most cur­rent research.

Ex post assessment of risks and benefits, and of biotechnology’s food security relevance, is virtually impossible. Addressing food security is a top global priority as illustrated in Goal 2 of achieving “Zero Hunger” of the Sustainable Development seeking to achieve this goal, UN countries recognize the unique role of role of biodiversity in delivering food security, which is a prerequisite for ending hunger.

According to UN data, more than million people worldwide still lack regular. Sustainable development is no small undertaking for international companies looking to meet today’s energy, food and environmental needs without compromising the Earth’s resources or its future.

The innovative solution these corporate leaders are turning to is biotechnology, whether it’s to augment agricultural productivity, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, create an innovative disease.

Popp, Molly M is the creation of an efficient system providing sustainable food and fuel from the land whilst also preserving biodiversity and ecosystems.

and social implications are summarised. This book will interest students, professionals and researchers. Biodiversity has so far served as the feedstock for sustainable food and health security and can play a similar role in the development of climate-resilient farming and livelihood systems.

Biodiversity is also the feedstock for the biotechnology industry. The Commission will take action to accelerate the market entry of new solutions that contribute to improving the sustainability of the food value chain, provided that these investments are made in a sustainable manner and without compromising food security or biodiversity, in the framework of clean energy initiatives and programmes.

The European Commission relies on research and innovation as. Advancements in science like biotechnology have paved ways for doing this faster and smarter, making the goals of improving livelihoods and ensuring food security achievable.

This year's theme for the IDB is Biodiversity for Sustainable Development.
