Calestous Juma: The World Needs Transgenic Crops to End Hunger

Harvard professor and international development expert Calestous Juma in his speech at McGill University emphasized that developing countries will need agricultural technology innovations, particularly transgenic crops to feed their people. Professor Juma said that while 28 countries are now benefitting from planting such crops, not all regions of the world are reaping their full benefits.

Harvard professor and international development expert Calestous Juma in his speech at McGill University emphasized that developing countries will need agricultural technology innovations, particularly transgenic crops to feed their people. Professor Juma said that while 28 countries are now benefitting from planting such crops, not all regions of the world are reaping their full benefits.

 

Speaking at McGill University to receive his Honorary Degree, Professor Juma said, "As the world's food challenges increase, so must humanity enlarge its toolbox to include genetic modification and other technologies." He then cited examples of transgenic plant science innovations in Africa, where there are only four countries planting transgenic crops.

 

Lastly, Professor Juma issued a plea, saying that it is now time to act with courage and a sense of urgency, for doing nothing carries more risks than experimenting with new technologies. "We cannot afford to be seduced by the dim light of technological stagnation," he said.

 

Professor Juma's speech is available at Harvard University's Belfer Center with the following link: http://belfercenter.ksg.harvard.edu/publication/23124/plea_for_agricultural_innovation.html.
