Session 1: Impacts of Climate Change on Agriculture
Chairman: Prof. Dr. Nguyen Kim Loi , NLU-HCMC, Vietnam
Among the countries in the world mostly affected by extreme weather events in the period from 1996 to 2015, Vietnam is ranked eighth. Climate change is already affecting agriculture, with effects unevenly distributed across the world. Future climate change will likely negatively affect crop production in low latitude countries such as Vietnam. In the SAE Conference, Session 1 will focuss on topics:
- Projection of future climate change scenarios
- Impacts of climate change on Agriculture/Forestry/Fishery
- Impacts of climate change on soil and water resources
- Climate change adaptation and mitigation for agriculture
Session 2: Application of Biotechnology in agriculture for adaptation to climate change
Chairman: Assoc. Prof. Dr. Le Dinh Don, NLU-HCMC, Vietnam
Biotechnology is being employed to handle issues for agricultural development in the climate change scene. This session focuses on tissue culture, genetic engineering, molecular markers, molecular diagnostics, and genomic technologies for developing the new crops to adapt to drought, saline, and temperature increasing or to resistance emerging pests due to climate change. In addition, new bio-products used for protection and promotion the crop plants to overcome the environmental risks are suggested to present in this session.
Session 3: Crops production adaptable to climate change
Chairman: Dr. Vo Thai Dan, NLU-HCMC, Vietnam
The Subsection on Crops production adaptable to climate change focuses on plant breeding and propagation, water and crop nutrition management, crop protection adaptable to climate change (especially drought and salinity conditions); the application of high-tech in agricultural production (soilless culture, using LED light, using plant growth regulators, controlling flowering, stimulating resistance, biological control, application of probiotics in crop production, plant factory); agricultural systems (high-tech agriculture, urban agriculture, organic agriculture, natural/permaculture agriculture) and other related fields in the context of climate change.
Session 4: Animal production adaptable to climate change
Chairman: Prof. Dr. Duong Nguyen Khang, NLU-HCMC, Vietnam
Results present on research and high technology transfer in breeding, nutrition, production processes, waste management, prevention and treatment of livestock diseases in conditions of adaptation to climate change, especially in dry and saline conditions of the Mekong Delta.
Session 5 : Advances in Food Processing and Preservation
Chairman: Assoc. Prof. Dr. Phan Tai Huan, NLU-HCMC, Vietnam
Emerging Technologies in Food Processing; Post Harvest Technology; Food Preservation Techniques; Thermal and Non-thermal Processing; Food Fermentation Technology; Safety and Application of Food Additives; Packaging & Shelf life of Food Product; Industrial Application of Food Technology...
Session 6: Supply chains in the context of climate change
Chairman: Dr. Nguyen Bach Dang, NLU-HCMC, Vietnam
Vietnam is one of the eight countries in the world most affected by climate change. Climate change seriously affects not only agricultural production but also most actors in the agricultural supply chains. Under the impact of climate change, actors involved in agricultural activities have been facing many potential risks to production plans, crop and livestock productivity, preliminary processing and storage. These will indirectly affect their income as well as livelihood. In the SAE 2020, session 5 focuses on the following topics:
-The economic efficiency of agricultural production models in response to climate change
- Supply chain and value chain of agricultural products adapted to climate change
- Agricultural production contracts.
- Household livelihood in the context of climate change
Session 7: Advances in Animal Health
1. Assoc. Prof. Dr. Vo Thi Tra An, NLU-HCMC, Vietnam
2. Prof. Paul Mills, UQ, Australia, UQ, Australia
Advances in animal sciences and veterinary medicine for sustainable purpose: cover all the aspects of veterinary science, animal production and health, including farming and management systems, infectious, non-infectious, zoonotic diseases of livestock, poultry, companion animals, aquaculture and wildlife species and veterinary public health issues.
