THEME: Change the future of migration.  Invest in food security and rural development.

The Director-General of FAO will be joined by Pope Francis and Ministers of Agriculture attending the Group of Seven (G7) meetings for the official ceremony on 16 October at FAO Headquarters. Whereas traditionally a message from His Holiness is delivered during the WFD ceremony, for the first time, the Pope will attend in person and call on the international community to change the future of migration. The presence of the G7 Ministers of Agriculture will be testament to the important link between food security, rural development and migration on the political agenda. Other special guests will include EU Commissioner Phil Hogan and the Heads of IFAD and WFP.

Programme 

The world is on the move. More people have been forced to flee their homes than at any time since the Second World War due to increased conflict and political instability. But hunger, poverty, and an increase in extreme weather events linked to climate change are other important factors contributing to the migration challenge.

Sessions and Tracks

Track 1: Plant Science and Plant Research

 Plant Science or all the more suitably alluded to as organic science, is the part of natural science that includes investigation of the morphology, life systems, scientific categorization and physiology of plants. It likewise incorporates study and investigation of sub-atomic parts of plant metabolic pathways, and the environmental connections existing between different plants. Furthermore, plant sciences likewise incorporate the investigation of fundamental ideas and connected parts of exploratory plant science, genomics, proteomics, plant natural chemistry, cell science, developmental science, useful plant rearing and frameworks science. The ebb and flow patterns and future prospects of plant science examine envelop the advancement of illness safe plants through plant biotechnological developments.

Track 2: Plants Genetics and Genomics

Plant genetics is the investigation of qualities, hereditary variety, and heredity particularly in Plants. It is for the most part thought about a field of science and herbal science, however converges oftentimes with numerous other life sciences and is emphatically connected with the investigation of data frameworks. Plant genetics is comparable from numerous points of view to creature genetics however varies in a couple of key regions.

Plant genomics is an inexorably imperative territory of science that has extended as of late because of the improvement of trend setting innovations and strategies. A comprehension of plant genomics is an essential for cutting edge plant rearing and yield enhancement. A top to bottom information of plant genomics causes analysts to upgrade generation, present opposition or resistance to antagonistic conditions and enhance crops. The ongoing advances in plant genomics and bioinformatics significantly affected plant science and hereditary qualities. New techniques and innovation have prompted a more prominent comprehension of both basic genomics and utilitarian genomics. Plant genomics produces chances to make crops with enhanced characteristics.

Track 3: Plant Anatomy and Morphology

Plant anatomy is that the study of the form, structure, and size of plants. As part of phytology (the study of plants), plant anatomy focuses on the structural or body elements and systems that structure a plant. A typical plant body consists of 3 major vegetative organs: the foundation, the stem, and therefore the leaf, furthermore as a group of generative elements that embrace flowers, fruits, and seeds.

Plant Morphology “represents a study of the development, form, and structure of plants, and, by implication, an attempt to interpret these on the basis of similarity of plan and origin.” There are four major areas of investigation in plant morphology, and each overlaps with another field of the biological sciences.

First of all, morphology is comparative, meaning that the morphologist examines structures in many different plants of the same or different species, then draws comparisons and formulates ideas about similarities. When structures in different species are believed to exist and develop as a result of common, inherited genetic pathways, those structures are termed homologous.

 

Track 4: Plant and Environment

A standout amongst the most critical commitments of plants to the earth is the generation of Oxygen (O2) and retention of Carbon dioxide (CO2) from the environment because of Photosynthesis. This is the essential procedure for plants life.In any case, plants additionally influence and change their surroundings making them more reasonable for living.

Track 5: Plant Hormones

Plant hormones are signal molecules made among plants that occur in extraordinarily low concentrations. Plant hormones management all aspects of growth and development, from embryogenesis, the regulation of organ size, microorganism defence, stress tolerance and thru to generative development. Unlike in animals (in that endocrine production is restricted to specialised glands) every plant cell is capable of manufacturing hormones. The term “Plant hormones” was coined by Went and Thimann and utilized in the title of their book in 1937.

Plant hormones are found across the kingdom Plantae, and even in protoctist, wherever they need similar functions to those seen in higher plants. Some Plant hormones additionally occur in microorganisms, like living thing fungi and bacterium, but in these cases they are doing not play a secretion role and may higher be thought to be secondary metabolites.

Track 6: Plant Pathology and Mycology

Plant Pathology is outlined because the study of the organisms and environmental conditions that cause unwellness in plants, the mechanisms by that this happens, the interactions between these causative agents and also the plant (effects on plant growth, yield and quality) and also the strategies of managing or dominant disease.

Mycology is that the branch of biology that deals with the study of fungi. It includes the analysis of their genetic and organic chemistry properties, and their use in drugs and food together with their hazards. The term mycology may be a concoction of the Greek words mukēs, which means flora, and logia, which means study.

Track 7: Plant Biotechnology

Plant biotechnology may be a set of techniques accustomed adapt plants for specific desires or opportunities. Situations that mix multiple desires and opportunities are common. For example, one crop is also needed to supply property food and healthful nutrition, protection of the surroundings, and opportunities for jobs and financial gain. Finding or developing appropriate plants is usually an extremely advanced challenge.
Plant biotechnologies that assist in developing new varieties and traits embody genetic science and genetics, marker-assisted choice (MAS), and transgenic (genetic engineered) crops. These biotechnologies enable researchers to find and map genes, discover their functions, choose for specific genes in genetic resources and breeding, and transfer genes for specific traits into plants wherever they’re required. NIFA funds analysis, training, and extension for developing and exploitation biotechnologies for food and agriculture.

Track 8: Plant Metabolic Engineering

Metabolic engineering is the use of genetic engineering to optimize the metabolism of an organism. It involves the introduction of new or recombinant genes or genetic circuits into host cell genomes in order to optimize or introduce new metabolic pathways. It can involve the optimization of existing biochemical pathways or the introduction of new pathway components, most commonly in bacteria, yeast or plants, with the goal of high-yield production of specific metabolites for medicine or biotechnology. Metabolic engineering is essentially utilizes E. coli or other approachable microorganisms into efficient “factories”, optimized to produce a desired biomolecule with higher yield and purity than non-genetically engineered organisms.

Track 9: Plant Nutrition and Soil Science

Plant Nutrition and Soil Science is the investigation of the capacities and elements of supplements in plants, soils and biological systems and of plant generation forms with the objective to enhance the development of plants to build the nature of reap items, to enhance soil richness, to advance the reusing of supplements, to diminish the cost of assets, to limit treatment – related ecological effects.

Track 10: Plant Ecology and Taxonomy

Plant ecology is a sub discipline of ecology which studies the distribution and abundance of plants, the effects of environmental factors upon the abundance of plants, and the interactions among and between plants and other organisms. Examples of these are the distribution of temperate deciduous forests in North America, the effects of drought or flooding upon plant survival, and competition among desert plants for water, or effects of herds of grazing animals upon the composition of grasslands.

Plant taxonomy is the science that finds, identifies, describes, classifies, and names plants. Plant taxonomy is closely allied to plant systematics, and there is no sharp boundary between the two. In practice, “Plant systematics” involves relationships between plants and their evolution, especially at the higher levels, whereas “plant taxonomy” deals with the actual handling of plant specimens. The precise relationship between taxonomy and systematics, however, has changed along with the goals and methods employed. Plant taxonomy is well known for being turbulent, and traditionally not having any close agreement on circumscription and placement of taxa.

Track 11: Plant Biology

The science of plants contrasts with creatures, their indications and reactions are very extraordinary. At times, a plant can essentially shed tainted leaves or blooms to keep the spread of malady, in a procedure called abscission. Most creatures don’t have this choice as a method for controlling disease. Plant maladies creatures themselves additionally contrast from those causing disease in creatures since plants can’t generally spread disease through easygoing physical contact. Plant pathogens tend to spread through spores or are conveyed by creature vectors.

Track 12: Plant Diseases and Bryology

Plant disease takes place when an organism infects a plant and disrupts its normal growth habits. Symptoms can range from slight discoloration to death. Diseases have many causes including fungi, bacteria, viruses, and nematodes. Below are 10 of the most common diseases affecting ornamental trees and shrubs.

Track 13:Plant Physiology and Biochemistry

The Study of plant morphology, development, and multiplication in living plants and furthermore worried about the plant morphology and some fundamental procedure, for example, photosynthesis, respiration, plant nourishment, plant hormone functions, tropisms, nastic developments, photograph morphogenesis, natural physiology (plant sicknesses), seed germination, torpidity and stomata capacity and transpiration, plant water relations. Plant biochemistry is related to molecular science such as macromolecules and plant metabolisms, Biomolecules, carbohydrates, amoni acid, lipids.

Track 14:Molecular Biology

Plant molecular biology explores the role of certain cells, their function in plant life and methods to alter those cells to greater effect. Some of the most common traits studied are reactions to various stresses, resistance to common disease and minerals contained within the plant. With training in plant molecular biology, especially at the graduate level, graduates can explore diverse careers in agriculture, micro- and molecular biology, biochemistry, ecology and teaching.

Track 15: Plant Bioinformatics:

Bioinformatics has become an important part of many areas of biology. In experimental molecular biology, bioinformatics techniques such as image and signal processing allow extraction of useful results from large amounts of raw data. In the field of genetics and genomics, it aids in sequencing and annotating genomes and their observed mutations. It plays a role in the text mining of biological literature and the development of biological and gene ontologies to organize and query biological data. It also plays a role in the analysis of gene and protein expression and regulation. Bioinformatics tools aid in the comparison of genetic and genomic data and more generally in the understanding of evolutionary aspects of molecular biology. At a more integrative level, it helps analyse and catalogue the biological pathways and networks that are an important part of systems biology. In structural biology, it aids in the simulation and modeling of DNA, RNA, proteins as well as bio molecular interactions.
