London School of Economics: Let Biotech Crops Help Feed the World

London School of Economics released the report Feeding the Planet in a Warming World which explains why advanced agricultural innovation, including the development and deployment of next-generation of biotech crops, is an essential response to the growing challenges of food security and climate change. The authors also outlined policies that should be implemented globally and locally to create a more robust agricultural innovation ecosystem that has the capacity to produce next-generation crop technologies needed to feed a rapidly growing population on a warming planet. These policies are:

  • boost global public investment in advanced agriculture innovation;
  • governments worldwide should reform GMO regulations; and
  • create or strengthen institutions to serve as Centers of Innovation Excellence.
