Evidence continues to mount that foodborne illness imposes a staggering health burden in developing countries. However, standard approaches used by developed country governments to ensure food safety are not appropriate in settings where regulatory enforcement capacity is weak and most firms are small and informal.

This paper updates previous assessments of the environmental impacts associated with using crop biotechnology in global agriculture. It focuses on the environmental impacts associated with changes in pesticide use and greenhouse gas emissions arising from the use of GM crops since their first widespread commercial use over 20 years ago.

Achieving the goal of climate resiliency of food systems is increasingly recognized by the global development community. Yet operationalizing such a goal remains a challenge at national-level policy systems.

In their article, "Solar Irrigation Cooperatives: Creating the Frankenstein's Monster for India's Groundwater", Sahasranaman et al. (2018) erroneously conclude that, "the Dhundi pilot...is an experiment that has gone terribly wrong".

The purpose of this study was to undertake an empirical investigation of adaptation “good practices” and define six categories of actions that can be practically considered by governments for scaling-up in order to reduce the risks of climate change.
