The Impact of Possible Climate Changes on Developing Countries
Friday, 2014/08/08 | 07:55:58

In an article released in GM Crops and Food, biotech experts Naglaa Abdallah, Vivian Moses, and CS Prakash presented how biotech applications can improve plant's tolerance to abiotic stresses brought about by climate change. According to the article, developing countries, particularly those in South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa may face the gravest consequences of climate change in food production. Genetic transformation and the resulting GM crops are increasingly adopted around the world, and thus the technology holds promise in addressing climate change problems in agriculture. Nanotechnology and other emerging biotechnologies can also offer solutions to devastating environmental changes that may occur.


The article titled The impact of possible climate changes on developing countries: The needs for plants tolerant to abiotic stresses is available at https://www.landesbioscience.com/journals/gmcrops/gmcr.32208.pdf.
