It goes without saying that the thoughts and support of everyone at GFN are with all those affected by Hurricane Harvey in the US, وبطبيعة الحال من الكوارث الطبيعية، وأينما أنهم قد يحدث في جميع أنحاء العالم. وأثر على الزراعة والأمن الغذائي الناجمة عن الكوارث الطبيعية عميقة. طرق التجارة والبنية الأساسية الموثوق بها هي المكونات الرئيسية للحياة ليس فقط يوميا, الكوارث ولكن تعمل من خلال والماضي.

At times over the past years, GFN has written about how agriculture has played a unique diplomatic role at some key moments in history. Ambassador Kenneth M. كوين, president of the World Food Prize, points this out in the current context of today:

Agriculture could be key to easing U.S.-North Korea tensions – دي موين سجل – By Kenneth M. كوين (سبتمبر 1)

With so few good options to defuse the current situation over North Korea’s enhanced strategic capabilities, including possible nuclear-weaponized long-range missiles, using agriculture as a vehicle to reduce tensions would seem worth a try.” – الارتباط

Again this week, GFN would also like to highlight the مشروع الأرز الذهبي and its efforts to address severe vitamin A deficiency, which can lead to blindness and other health issues, primarily in children.

The Philippine الأرز Research Institute (PhilRice) and the International الأرز Research Institute (الأرز) have submitted an application for a biosafety permit to allow Vitamin A-biofortified (GR2E) الأرز to be used for food, تغذية, and processing in the Philippines. بالإضافة, IRRI has also applied to include the الأرز in the Food Standards Australia New Zealand Code (FSANZ) to prevent any trade issues if small amounts of the الأرز inadvertently end up in shipments of other milled الأرز imported into Australia/New Zealand.

The governments are both accepting public comments until 14 أيلول/سبتمبر and we urge you to all provide comments of support for the applications prior to that deadline. Your comments in support can be directed to the Director of the Bureau of Plant Industry (الفلبين) through e-mail at bpibiotechsecretariat@yahoo.com, and online at http://www.foodstandards.gov.au/code/changes/submission/Pages/SubmissionForm.aspx for FSANZ (Application Number A1138; Proposal for Food derived from Provitamin A Rice Line GR2E).
