Green Biotechnology and Climate Change

June 26, 2009

A new report Green Biotechnology and Climate Change has been released by Eurapabio. It highlights the significant potential of agricultural biotechnology to reduce green house gas emissions, and help crops adapt to a changing climate and produce more food from less available land. The book also provides information on how green biotech allows a range of options to help farmers adopt sustainable agricultural practices that can tackle tomorrow's challenges.

Willy de Greef, Secretary General of EuropaBio, endorsed the book commenting that, "Climate change poses a huge threat to the survival of millions around the world through famine and disease. It's our responsibility to stop talking shop and start leading by acknowledging, endorsing and applying the full range of tools available, including safe agricultural biotech solutions."
