Biotechnology to Help Achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals

We are living in a world that is so rapidly changing with a lot of global risks. To make better state of the world, the United Nations announced 17 sustainable development goals. In this lecture, I will describe the roles of biotechnology to help achieve the UN’s sustainable development goals. How white biotechnology is contributing to sustainable production system will be discussed. Also, several examples of better addressing the aging world will be presented. It is hoped that this talk will provide some thought-points that will further develop towards achieving sustainable development goals.
