International Symposium                                                                                                                                     RECENT TRENDS IN AGRICULTURE,BIODIVERSITY AND SOCIAL SUSTAINABILITY

Today the world is in the silver jubilee transit decade of 21st century which is inscribing the entire plot of our future socio-economic drama to decide the destiny and destination of the humanity. The information is getting incarnated into transformation with great pace. Philosophy, science, and arts are attaining innovative dimensions, fructifying novel paradigms for the well being of the society. However, the sustainability aspect in basic needs, natural resources, and the society in itself has become interrogative. Agriculture has been the most ancient practice inductive to human settlement, civilization and culture, but our over-reliance on a handful of high yielding varieties, intensive use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides have not only created health hazards and ecological maladies but also a state of unsustainability over agriculture itself. Indiscriminate developmental activities and techno-economic mindset of the corporate sector have further aggravated the problem of loss of habitats, genetic erosion and environmental pollution by unlimited exploitation of natural resources. Although there are plenty of talks about environmental and economic sustainability, but the stake holding dimension of society and social sustainability is often ignored in mainstream discussions. It is therefore pertinent to have dialogues on agriculture and biodiversity in terms of social sustainability.
