 Jammu, Oct 14: The Replacement of Fossil Fuel with Renewable Energy not only needs perpetual investment but also change in the investment decisions, said Prof. John H Perkins Member of the Faculty Emeritus, Washington USA. He was speaking at the Prof. David Pimentel Memorial Lecture during the IES International Conference 2022 on Sustainable Agricultural Innovations for Resilient Agri-Food Systems organized at SKUAST-Jammu, Chatha.

He was also of the opinion that the consequences of climate change will result in decline of food production resulting in high prices, malnutrition and famine.

During the second day of the International Conference three keynote sessions on the themes viz., Agriculture and Forestry on Path Towards Carbon Neutrality; Public Health, Food Security and Safety; Genetics Innovations for Climate resilient Agri-food systems were conducted in which speakers from all over the world deliberated on different topics.
