Abstract

The advancement of science and technology brings us prosperous futures and gives comfort to our lives. The tools and knowledge generated by science and technology have transformed the way we approach health, agriculture, energy, development, communications, education, social interactions, and security. Many of these advances and uses offer great benefit to modern society, but some have increased risks to health, security, and sovereignty. Sometimes it brings adverse effects on human life with respect to security on account of being misused accidently or intentionally. The major areas of concern regarding adverse effects are chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) because they may induce mass casualties and have the potential for damaging long-term effects. The science and technology community should therefore make every effort to contribute to the prevention of CBRN types of disasters. (The rest omitted)
