Rice diversity: balancing needs and rights to feed the world

An IRRI Seminar

By Ruaraidh Sackville Hamilton
Senior Scientist  - Evolutionary Biology
Genetics and Biotechnology

11 February 2016
1:15-2:15 p.m.
Havener Auditorium
IRRI HQ


Abstract:
In this seminar, passionately held conflicting views about the use of genetic resources to solve the challenges of climate change, population growth, hunger, poverty, and environmental degradation will be presented. Ruaraidh will attempt to shed light on some of these differing views, particularly on inter-governmental debates, that determine how rice is conserved, distributed, and improved. He will also present how IRRI has created a solution that allows the institute to do what needs to be done while complying with international obligations. Finally, an update will be given on recent developments that require even more careful consideration, and impending changes that may need further adaptation.
