The second of three presentations in a seminar on "A Greener Revolution: Improving Productivity and Increasing Food Security BY Enhancing Ecosystem Services." For decades, agricultural scientists and fisheries experts have been working with farming and fishing communities to minimize environmental impacts and develop technologies and practices that increase productivity while sustaining or improving ecosystem function over the long term. This seminar addresses the challenge of feeding a growing global population while maintaining the natural resource base upon which food production ultimately depends: water quality, soil fertility, pollination, pest control among other essential services. The seminar will feature experiences with integrated agriculture and environment programming and their ideas for scaling up innovative approaches to meet the food security challenge.
