The world currently faces the great challenge of feeding a growing population while simultaneously minimizing agriculture’s negative impact on global climate change. In this talk, Sarah Davidson Evanega, Ph.D., (director, Cornell Alliance for Science) will share examples of how the tools of agricultural biotechnology are being employed to help address this and associated urgent challenges.

We will explore how access to biotechnologies addresses injustices to the poor and other social problems in countries like Bangladesh. We will also discuss how applications of biotechnology may help lessen agriculture’s carbon emissions and other deleterious environmental impacts. Finally, we will explore how denying GMO science challenges a liberal worldview and obfuscates shared values around achieving justice for the poor, and address the critical need to defend evidence-based science in a time of unprecedented urgency.
