Addressing the opening session, Qatar University President HE Dr.Sheikha Abdullah Al-Misned said food security is one of the major causes outlining features of future development considering it an issue requiring multiparty strategy that deals with water shortage , climate changes , agricultural productivity increase and the agro-economic policies hindering the access of individuals especially the poor to food. Dr. Sheikha Al Misned made clear that no matter how different the reasons for the lack of food between countries, their harmful and dangerous effects require joint action and cooperation between the research and academic, political and government institutions for the common interest. HE dr. Al-Misned has affirmed that Qatar University has placed its research potentials and scientific capabilities to support the Qatar National Food Security Programme (QNFSP) for the key role it plays for upgrading the percentage of self-efficiency and decreasing dependence on foreign imports .. “It is a difficult and vital target at the same time”, she said.
