Cuban specialists participate in seminars on agriculture and food

Havana, Sept. 10 – Cuban specialists will take part in a state-of-the-art webinar cycle to promote nuclear science and technology in Latin America and the Caribbean.

The Nuclear Communications Network (REDNUC) reports that they are experts from the Environmental Radiology Laboratory owned by the Radiation Protection and Hygiene Center (CFR).

Also from the Cienfuegos (CEAC) Environmental Research Laboratory (LEA) Environmental Research Center, which intervenes in agricultural and food-related projects.

Both initiatives contribute to improving food security in the region through the analysis of risk-based policies and the analysis of public health and environmental protection.

REDNUC stated that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in Vienna has expressed support for the modernization of the region’s proposals during the new Coronavirus COVID-19 epidemic.

Each of them will present its findings on the implementation of radio analytical and related techniques to strengthen regional cooperation between public laboratories to control water pollution and address new food security challenges.

Improve regional capabilities for analysis and monitoring programs to contaminate food residues using isotopic and additional nuclear techniques.

Cuban institutions, according to REDNUC, provide laboratory supplies and training to staff on food monitoring, waste and pollution analysis through training courses and specialized technical assistance.

A.D. In 2020, Cuba enacted the most modern and comprehensive law on food security to address political issues that are key to the new constitution.

Food security is the right of every citizen to have safe, nutritious and healthy products.

As a result, the participation of the two Cuban laboratories in such regional projects could make a real contribution to the purpose of the country on the map.

The virtual reality of the COVID-19 epidemic has made ARCAL the mainstay of operations, and webmasters have been able to search for alternatives and streamline operations.

Human health, energy and environmental seminars have already taken place in this cycle, the next one related to radiation technologies. (ACN (photo file)
