Efforts to diversify food with a variety of carbohydrate-producing plants need to be developed to support national food security, especially in facing the impacts of climate change. This was emphasized by Prof. Dr. Edi Santosa, Professor of IPB University from the Faculty of Agriculture.
Currently, Prof. Edi has joined up with the Malaysian Agriculture Research and Development Institute (MARDI), Philippines, Fiji and funded by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) through the International Center of Agriculture and Bioscience (CAB) to be part of a taro consortium investigating the use of taro as food security in the face of climate change.
