Abstract

CAER Guest editorial 9,3 Impacts of and attitudes toward GM technology in China: challenges, policy and research implications Introduction The global food security will be facing great challenges in the near future. The latest baseline projections by the International Food Policy Research Institute (2017) show that the global food production should increase by at least 60 percent in 2050, as compared to 2010, in order to meet the growing demand for food, feed, fiber, and fuel. In addition, after considering further issues related to this matter, agri-food researchers and policy makers along with their stakeholders could be well advised on how to examine every resource available in their toolkit. These may include prospective climate change, growing competition for water and land use, resource governance and environmental protection, poverty reduction, and the need to improve maternal and childhood health and nutrition outcomes. Genetically modified (GM) technology is one of major tools that can significantly boost agricultural productivity (National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM), 2016). In most countries that have adopted GM crops, there has been a rapid growth in their planted area due to the advantages of GM technology. The global areas of GM crops increased from 1.7
