We discuss options to reform the EU genetically modified organism (GMO) regulatory framework, make risk assessment and decision-making more consistent with scientific principles, and lay the groundwork for international coherence. In this third of three articles, we focus on labeling and coexistence as well as discuss the political reality and potential ways forward.

Climate change is one of the biggest challenges of twenty-first century as it is not only going to affect humankind directly, but by affecting the different regions of the globe differently, it will cause changes in agricultural ecosystems. Developing countries having tropical climate will be more severely affected as increasing temperature and drought conditions will increase the demand for water. A slight increase in temperature will affect the yields of crops in colder temperate regions as well. Grains and oilseeds will mature faster whereas, in horticulture, tomatoes, onions and fruits might be produced of low quality because of climate change. Developing countries which are densely populated, are going to be adversely affected and would experience severe food insecurity. Agriculture is one sector which not only causes climate change itself, but is also affected in worst way by climate change. There is an increased demand for use of biotechnological tools to help crops adapt to the various climatic changes which will not only help these crops to survive in adverse conditions but will also save humankind from severe food insecurity.
