Title The role of science, technology and innovation in ensuring food security by 2030
Title Original The role of science, technology and innovation in ensuring food security by 2030
Official Acronym UNCTAD Projekt
FiBL project number 35141
Abstract

About 795 million people, or every ninth person, is undernourished, with the majority living in developing countries and rural areas. New, existing, and emerging technologies can address the four dimensions of food security. However, harnessing the potential of such technologies for food security requires investments in research and development, human capital, infrastructure and knowledge flows.

 

Creating an environment for agricultural innovation also benefits from an enabling environment, gender-sensitive approaches to technology development and dissemination, regional and international collaboration, and technology foresight and assessment for agricultural innovations.
