Scientific Forum 2018 - Session 3: Adapting to a Changing Environment

The planet is facing global warming realities such as food scarcity and the loss of ecosystems. Many sectors of the economy need to adapt to a changing environment, in particular the agricultural sector. The third session explored how nuclear techniques can be used to breed more resilient crops, enhance animal productivity, address risks to food safety, and fight insect pests and animal diseases. The role that nuclear science plays in assisting countries to adapt to the consequences of climate change was highlighted.
