EU beefs up food security According to estimates by experts world population would reach a staggering 9 billion over the following 40 years and food demand would increase by 50% much before that by year 2030. The strain on land as being a resource out of good servings of cultivable land being used up to supply liveable space and shelter to the swelling population would only compound the challenge. Given the bleak scenario occurance of the EU joint Programming Initiative (JPI) on agriculture couldn't came every day later.The JPI constitutes 20 European countries which interact and synergise their efforts and knowledge in defining, developing and implementing perhaps biotechnology and bioengineering the most common strategy to address all issues that concern the wellness of its citizens. It would assist in strengthening research collaboration and coordinate effort to stop duplication making the most effective use of the national funding of EUR 1 billion Marks presented per year for the initiative. The JPI will eliminate fragmented research efforts which could pull in opposite directions and produce with regards to a coherent and coordinated research initiative which would play a crucial role inside European 2020 strategy. The undeniable fact that less than 15% of civil research is currently coordinated in the European level and also the EU budget covers only 5% of public research funding is not something to be happy about and it is this anomaly how the EU Commission promises to correct. The JPI doesn't just try to look for opportinity for a reliable, safe and sustainable food supply but will also tackle the impact that climate change sports agriculture. The JPI is led through the National Institute for Agricultural Research (INEA) in France and also the Biotechnology and Biological Research Council (BBSRC) inside the UK other member nations being Austria, the Czech Republic, Cyprus, Denmark, Germany, Estonia, Finland, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Italy, The Netherlands, Norway, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden and Turkey.
