Two main health-related uses of biodiversity are considered: the development of novel pharmaceutical products and the improvement of nutrition through agricultural advances. Biodiversity, Biotechnology, and Sustainable Biotechnology and sustainable development in health and agriculture book in Health and Agriculture [Pan American Health Organization] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers.

explores the connections among biodiversity, biotechnology, and sustainable development by examining the drug discovery process and acricultural improvements for better nutrition. Subsequent sections explore such issues as costs, scientific and resource requirements, and economic prospects of different drug development models; how biodiversity and biotechnology can team up to establish a high-yield, sustainable agriculture; the legal ramifications of intellectual property rights, fair compensation for indigenous knowledge, and different contractual arrangements; how to assess biodiversity's economic value.

Agriculture is both a cause and solution to environmental problems. Agriculture is linked to biodiversity loss and climate change. However, sustainable agriculture also has the unique potential to mitigate climate change and strengthen resilience to the impacts of climate change.

Biodiversity is fundamental to both biotechnology and sustainable agriculture. Judicious, rational, and science- and need-based exploitation of genetic resources through biotechnological techniques should lead to sustainable agriculture.

The controversy arises only when non-scientific, hasty, profit-motivated, inhuman andFile Size: 62KB. The topics addressed in this book are of vital importance to the survival of humankind. Agricultural biodiversity, encompassing genetic diversity as well as human knowledge, is the base upon which agricultural production has been built, and protecting this resource is critical to ensuring the capacity of current and future generations to adapt to unforeseen challenges.

Sustainable Development and Biodiversity. This book series provides complete, comprehensive and broad subject based reviews about existing biodiversity of different habitats and conservation strategies in the framework of different technologies, ecosystem diversity, and genetic diversity.

Contributions of biodiversity to the achievement of Goal 2. Biodiversity is a key factor for the achievement of food security and improved nutrition.

All food systems depend on biodiversity and a broad range of ecosystem services that support agricultural productivity, soil fertility, and water quality and supply.

Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD) in Johannesburg, South Africa, the UN Secretary General introduced the WEHAB initiative which recognized water, energy, health, agriculture and biodiversity as the basic necessity for life.

Sustainable development will result from the interactions of three major and interacting. sustainable agricultural development and the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity for food and agriculture.

As a result of the above two aspects, biotechnology has become a pivotal tool for sustainable development in such diverse areas as Agriculture, Environment, Industry and Human Health. Biotechnology, the application of an explosion of biological knowledge, gives humankind the ability to alter the structure of life itself.

The main research interests of Dr. Rokem are the regulation of antibiotic production in Actinobacteria, production of organic acids with filamentous fungi and the use of Biotechnology to reach Sustainable Development, mainly novel methods for sewage treatment.

Connecting Global Priorities: Biodiversity and Human Health brings together the current state of knowledge about how biodiversity and human health are linked.

The book is a result of collaboration between the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), the World Health Organization (WHO) and other partners. Biodiversity is the variability among living organisms: within and between species and ecosystems.

This book in the series “Sustainable Development and Biodiversity” contains peer-reviewed chapters from leading academicians and researchers around the world in the field of horticulture, plant taxonomy, plant biotechnology, genetics and related areas of biodiversity science centered on genetic diversity.

Agricultural biodiversity is the diversity of crops and their wild relatives, trees, animals, microbes and other species that contribute to agricultural production. This diversity - which results from thousands of years of interactions among people and the environment - is a key component of healthy diets and human health.
