of Biotechnology, Government of India and UNESCO by Research and Information System for Developing Countries (RIS), a New Delhi based autonomous think-tank, envisioned as a forum for fostering effective policy dialogue among developing countries on international economic issues. This issue carries three papers and a book reviews. The book provides comprehensive information starting from early progress to the latest trends on bioenergy, biorefinery and bioeconomy with special reference to the developed and the developing countries and the linkage between bioeconomy and climate change mitigation in simple scientific language to appeal to a wider audience.

  Book Description. Few scientific developments have given rise to as much controversy as biotechnology. Numerous groups are united in their opposition, expressing concern over environmental and health risks, impacts on rural livelihoods, the economic dominance of multinational companies and the ethical implications of crossing species boundaries. The extraordinary developments occurring in biotechnology throughout the world will lead to significant changes in world commerce, as well as in human health and welfare. A few dramatic advances have already been made in medical and agricultural biotechnology. Production of vaccines employing recombinant DNA methods is one example of the potential for genetic engineering applications in the.

Marine biotechnology and the developing world are especially well suited for each other. First, many developing countries have extensive and valuable marine resources ().For instance, the combined exclusive economic zones from the Philippines, Indonesia, Brazil, and Chile comprise ∼ million km 2 (or ∼5% of the total global ocean area).

Second, the biodiversity endemic to developing. Opportunities and constraints in agricultural biotechnology in developing countries are of significance in responding to the challenge of poverty in the 21st century (Persley and Lantin, ) as they influence the development of national strategies that minimize environmental, health and social risks; and that address the nutritional needs of.

Show this book's table of contents. Abstract. One of today’s most rapidly growing bioscience-based technological fields is marine biotechnology. The term “marine biotechnology” refers to the assembly of research and developmental activities in the biological, chemical and environmental sciences that occur in or are related to the marine environment (Zilinskas, Colwell, Lipton & Hill, ).

Developed as well as developing countries are facing challenges in sustainable supply of nutritious food and energy, climate change and environmental degradation, health and aging populations.

Marine biotechnology can make an increasingly important contribution toward meeting these societal challenges.For this reason, advances in marine biotechnology may foster the much-needed source of innovation and economic growth in many countries, and pave the way towards the development of a global blue economy, i.e.

a new economic model based on the sustainable exploration of our ocean ecosystems.
