As the world population continues to grow, much more effort and innovation will be urgently needed in order to sustainably increase food security and food safety, improve the supply chain, create new food products, decrease food losses and waste, and ensure that more people have access to nutritious food.
The sustainable development goal to reach the food security and food safety, improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture, recognizes the inter linkages among supporting sustainable agriculture, empowering small farmers, improving gender equality, reducing rural poverty, ensuring healthy lifestyles, solving climate change. Agriculture systems worldwide must become more productive and less wasteful. Sustainable agricultural practices and food systems, including both production and consumption, must be pursued from a holistic and integrated perspective.
The International Symposium on Food Security and Sustainable Development 2017 will provide a platform where local and international researchers, policy makers and industry leaders can exchange ideas, learn from each other, and work towards shaping a sustainable development based on the principles of safety, nutritious food, food security and sustainable agriculture.
