Second international conference entitled “Innovation in agriculture to ensure food security in climate change” on 23-25/08/2022 was organized by international center for climate change food security & sustainability and Consortium on climate change sustainability & conservation at Islamia University of Bahawalpur (IUB) Pakistan on online and offline mode. Dr. Muhammad Adeel (Distinguished Associate professor) from Beijing Normal University addressed the audience a keynote speaker.
Dr. M. Adeel explained the emerging role of nanotechnology in global food security. How nanotechnology can tackle current scenarios of increasing populations, climate change, declining soil quality and competing demands on land for biofuel production mean that it is becoming more and more difficult to feed the global population. He mentioned, “The main driver for innovation in agri-tech is the need to feed the increasing global population with a decreasing agricultural land area while conserving soil health and protecting environmental quality.”
By explaining his previous experimentation data and various published scientific manuscripts, he urged the community that nanotechnology could offer a sustainable, practical solution to combat the mounting challenge of global food security and climate change.
