One of the preliminary concerns of the today’s world intellectuals, authorities and politicians is food security, specifically in the developing countries. Novel technologies have found their way globally as most prominent solutions in food security in the past few years.
The world population has already passed 7 billion, and it is expected to reach 9 billion by 2050. Food production for this increasing population is a big challenge for all the governments. Hence, countries have to implement modern technologies to cope with the increasing demand for the food and agricultural products. Recent global developments in the field of modern agricultural biotechnology including genomics, tissue culture.

As the Coordinator of ECO Agricultural Biotechnology Network, it is a pleasure for me to introduce ECO-ABN and its goals.
Agricultural Biotechnology involves using scientific tools and techniques in order to improve human life’s quality. This science can play an important role in determining the fate of 9 billion people who will be living on the earth in the year 2050. Therefore, it is important to apply modern biotechnological strategies to enhance food production for growing demand and to ensure food security in the member countries of ECO.
