Welcome to the Conference at Khulna

Biotechnology and sustainable development are intricately linked and playing a pivotal role in advancing and achieving sustainable development goals. Biotechnology utilizes living organisms and biological systems to develop innovative solutions that promote economic growth, social progress, and environmental conservation. In the agricultural sector, biotechnology enables the development of genetically modified crops that exhibit improved yields, resilience to pests and diseases, and reduce environmental hazards. It contributes to the sustainable agriculture by optimizing resource utilization, minimizing chemical inputs, and enhancing food security. In healthcare, biotechnology drives the development of new treatments, diagnostics, and vaccines, improving healthcare outcomes while addressing the global burden of diseases.
