AMMAN — Princess Basma Bint Ali on  Monday attended the Third Agricultural Scientific Conference, organised by the branch of the Jordanian Agricultural Engineers Association in Irbid, under the theme "Food Security in Jordan: Opportunities and Challenges".

Mohammad Al Hiyari, the secretary-general of the Ministry of Agriculture, deputising for the Minister of Agriculture, emphasised that the conference's topic comes at a critical time when Jordan, along with the rest of the world, is facing unprecedented challenges that have significantly impacted global food security, according to the Jordan News Agency, Petra. 

These challenges primarily stem from climate change, population growth, international conflicts and wars, leading to increased food demand against the backdrop of rising production costs, energy consumption, transportation limitations and water scarcity.
