Climate change and food security
EU Member States experts and stakeholders on 14 July 2015 debated at Expo Milan on the impact of climate change on food safety and food security and its concomitant emerging risks to the health and quality of plants and seeds. An estimated global population of 9.2 billion people by 2050 requires means to increase food production sustainably by 60 % and demands a holistic approach drawing on a number of EU policies. At the same time, 10-16 % of world production is lost every year because of pests and diseases. Europe's agriculture, forests and natural heritage are also threatened by new pests and diseases as a result of the globalisation of trade, climate change but also travelling. The EU is a centre of excellence for plant breeding and seed production, thus playing a major role in addressing these challenges. The panel engaged in a dialogue with participants on the challenges of climate change for plant health and plant breeding. It comprised the approach to maintain a competitive, sustainable and productive agricultural sector in the EU to meet consumers’ expectations and market demand. Several tools and programmes were presented to prevent, detect and control emerging risks and plant diseases. To increase the yield potential and optimise resource efficiency there is a need for an integrated approach composed of agricultural practices and innovative breeding, the latter shifting towards genome analysis. The conference aimed to reflect on the future of sustainable agricultural, horticultural and forestry production, maintaining biodiversity in the EU and in the world. The availability of genetic resources as raw material for plant breeding contributes to the production of diverse and nutritious food/feed whereas diverse forest genetic resources allow forests to be more resilient to the effects of climate change.
