Tenth World conference - The eradication of hunger
The Tenth World Conference on The Future of Science explores a theme that puts science at the centre of the social debate: The Eradication of Hunger.
The aim is to offer a global vision of problems such as water scarcity, the development of sustainable agriculture, food safety, food and health; and to indicate how science and technology can contribute to solving these problems. Economic, political and ethical aspects are also discussed.
The conference starts from the assumption that everybody has a right to clean water and wholesome food. These are not only moral imperatives: any investment to accomplish them will bring major economic returns.
