UN betting on ‘New Biotechnology Green”

Labex Korea – The report Resilient People, Resilient Planet: A Future Worth Choosing, the High-Level Panel for Global Sustainability issued 56 recommendations to put into practice sustainable development and highlights it on the agenda of economic policies. The 22-member panel, created by UN Secretary General in August 2010, is co-chaired by the President of Finland Tarja Halonen and President of South Africa Jacob Zuma. “With the possibility that the world is plunging further into recession, policy makers are hungry for ideas that can help them navigate through these perilous times,” said President Zuma. “Our report makes clear that sustainable development is more important than ever given the multiple crises that beset the world today.”
The report emphasizes the importance of science as a guide in decision making on issues of sustainability. The report adds that the ‘new biotechnologies green’ could have a ‘valuable role in enabling farmers to adapt to climate change, improve resistance to pests, restore soil fertility and contributing to the diversification of rural economy’.
