Implications of nanotechnology growth in food and agriculture in OECD countries uri icon

abstract

  • This article provides an analysis of the implications of the growth of nanotechnology in the agriculture and food sector in OECD countries. Three main policy challenges are identified related to funding and investment, risk governance, and public acceptance. Each of these interconnected challenges underlines a number of ethical questions that need to be addressed. Several recommendations are laid out to move forward and adapt to these emerging policy issues. (C) 2012 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
