but if you teach me how to grow rice,
I’ll eat every day."

Sustainable development is by and large determined by coherence among elements of sustainability like food security, environment, clean energy systems, judicious use of natural resources, application of advanced technologies and human as well as live stock health for welfare of civic society globally. Environmental soundness as well as fragility is of utmost concern to all living beings especially under climate change as it determines the expression of potential productivity of crops, animals, microorganisms etc. Food security is determined by crop production, access and affordability. The food basket is determined by nutritional and end use quality of produce, post-harvest processing, agro and allied industries and market forces.
Environmental sustainability is an integral component of food and feed security which are mutually exclusive. Clean or green energy systems from water, wind, solar, biomass, geothermal, sea waves etc. represent renewable energy resources without creating environmental pollution. Clean Energy Systems as against fossil fuels can help to decrease greenhouse gas emissions for better ecosystems. Consequently, solar, wind and hydro based energy systems are catching up.
