International Conference on Sustainable Aquaculture (Virtual Conference)

International Conference on Sustainable Aquaculture (Virtual Conference)

Date: 10 – 11 August 2021

You are invited to join Webinar on “Microbiome Supporting Regenerative Agriculture

Background:

Food has become the biggest driver of environmental degradation. Food production can drive soils loss, increase droughts and floods and other major weather events which in turn lower the food production. Food system transformation is therefore necessary to achieve a sustainable food system and regenerative agriculture can play a significant role in this transformation.

The National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA), Thailand and IBG-2 Plant Sciences, Forschungszentrum Jülich, Germany will be hosting a webinar on “Microbiome Supporting Regenerative Agriculture” which aims to establish a better understanding in regenerative agriculture among stakeholders as well as to highlight an important role of technology such as microbiome and biocontrol in the global sustainable food system.

This webinar to be held as a side event of the Science Days for the UN Food Systems Summit 2021.

You are invited to join Webinar on ANSO International Forum on Green Technology

The 14th China Bioindustry Convention

ANSO International Forum on Green Technology

11th June 2021; 10:00 – 17:00 hrs. (Beijing Time)

9.00 – 16.00 hrs. (Bangkok Time)

*************************************

Background

The Alliance of International Science Organizations (ANSO) is a non-profit and non-government international scientific organization founded in 2018 by 37 international science and education organizations around the world. It is committed to promoting shared sustainable development and the advancement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through promoting and implementing concrete international cooperative initiatives in Science, Technology, Innovation and Capacity Building.

Representing ANSO Governing Board, the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and Thailand’s National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA) join forces to organize ANSO International Forum for Green Technology to promote the concept of green technology and its contribution to SDGs. This ANSO event will be set up as one session of the 14th China Bioindustry Convention held on 10-12 June 2021 in Guangzhou.

 

About this Session

In recent decades, the rapid socio-economic growth in developing countries is mainly driven by increasing intensive industry, agriculture and construction through massive consumption of natural resources. As one of the consequences of the rapid development, the environment degradation along with air-water-land pollutions in these countries becomes more and more crucial challenge for national and regional policy makers, while public health and food safety issues are concerned very much by publics and governments. The concept of circular economy and innovative biotechnology are promoted and implemented in many countries to cope with the overuse of resources and environment pollutions. Merging green technologies are demonstrated and applied to industry, agriculture and construction fields to reduce-reuse-recycle (3R) the natural resources.

In the same time, climate change is bringing more unprecedented changes to our planet such as extreme weathers, geohyrological hazards, food and water scarcity, biodiversity loses and epidemics, etc., which will threaten the sustainable socio-economic development and human wellbeing seriously. Its impact is enormous and global, climate change has become a pressing issue and call for an urgent action. By now, a certain consensus has been achieved via Paris Agreement, UN SDGs, and other cooperation mechanisms. To control the global temperature, increase less than 2.0 degree by 2100, most countries have promised to get net-zero emission in the middle of this century. In near future, there will be significant surging demands of green technology to meet the challenges of renewable energy an d decarbonization, especially by rapid economic growth countries and regions.

As the heart of the use of green technology is to maintain a sustainable environmental balance, everyone needs to think about it and act, and global joint efforts are requested. This session will present the action taken by each sector to help the world fight against climate change. The goal of this session is to encourage participants to think globally, act locally and expand collaboration.

Date and Time : 11th June 2021; 10:00 – 17:00 hrs. (Beijing Time), 9.00 – 16.00 hrs. (Bangkok Time)

Blocking Zika virus maternal-to-fetal transmission using innovative “organ in a dish”, crowdfunding campaign launched by the National Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (BIOTEC), Thailand

In February 2016, the World Health Organization declared the mosquito-borne Zika virus a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC) – a declaration driven by concern over links between the disease and neonatal neurological disorders including microcephaly, a birth defect where a baby is born with significant smaller head than normal. As of July 2019, a total of 87 countries and territories have had evidence of mosquito-borne transmission, according to World Health Organization (WHO). In Thailand, cases of Zika virus has been detected for at least the last 16 years, despite the relatively low number. Zika virus can be transmitted from a pregnant mother to her fetus during pregnancy. Effort and resources from the scientific community have been expended in an attempt to better understand the mechanisms of Zika virus infection including the vertical transmission from mother to her fetus. However, there is still a challenge in developing therapeutics to prevent this mode of transmission.
