Abstract

The Food and Agriculture Program at IIASA focuses its research activities on understanding the nature and dimension of the world's food situation and problems, on exploring possible alternative policies which could improve the present situation in the short and long term., and on investigating the consequences of such policies at various levels -- global. national and regional -- and in various time horizons.

One part of the research activities focused on investigations of alternative paths of technology transformation in agriculture with respect to resource limitations and environmental consequences in the long term.

In this context an assessment of the possible impact on global and regional supplies of food of new, non-traditional technologies for the production of protein has been considered important and a series of Task Force Meetings were organized.

At previous Task Force Meetings held at IIASA and Tbilisi, U.S.S.R. the technologies for protein production were reviewed and a worldwide collaborative network established for the collection of data. The main theme of the Third Task Force Meeting held in Sofia, was on the qualitative and quantitative aspects which will influence the contribution that new technologies may make to food supplies within the period of the next twenty years.

Here Dr. Worgan has presented the papers submitted to the Third Task Force Meeting held in Sofia in October 1982, that was organized jointly by the Food and Agriculture Program of IIASA, the Bulgarian National Committee for Applied Systems Analysis and Management, and the University of Sofia.
