				Hero_July 30 Webinar (without reg)

Background

The world has been dealing with the covid-19 crisis over the past 6 months, including the immediate issues of food supply chain resilience, along with the greater risk of hunger and food insecurity. These issues in turn have highlighted the urgency of addressing the pathways to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), especially SDG 2 to end hunger and malnutrition in all its forms and promote sustainable agriculture by 2030.

A recent report from the High Level Panel of Experts on Food Security and Nutrition (HLPE), the science-policy group of the UN Committee on World Food Security (CFS) has shown the multiple and complex challenges facing food systems, requiring data and actions from numerous parties which will need coordination to achieve optimal results.

Food supply systems are directly operated by private stakeholders, from small scale farmers and food processors, to large agriculture farms and trading, food processing, and distribution. This sector has experienced adverse impact from supply chain disruptions yet shown resilience during this crisis. While playing a vital role in managing the current crisis to meet consumption needs, investing, on-going adaptation and transformation of the sector will be key to future improvement in assuring food quality and security.

This Webinar builds on the foundation of the ILSI Asia COVID-19 Webinar Series: Part 1 - Food System Resilience: Global & Asia Perspectives on May 26, 2020 which considered the immediate effects of COVID-19 pandemic on the food system, initial responses from governments particularly in Asia and global agencies, lessons learnt and outlook for food system resilience, with likely long term impacts. A scientific paper from the meeting has been submitted for publication.

Two eminent speakers and a panel of experts will further explore challenges and opportunities for long term sustainability and resilience of the food system.

Three eminent experts with global experience will kick start the 1st of the regional series organized by ILSI Asia on Tuesday, May 26, 2020. The experts will discuss the impact of COVID-19 on the short term food supply chain, and longer-term consequences to the fundamentals of our food systems, and identify where the strengths and weaknesses are in our food security preparedness, as well as future investments needed. The collaborative role and efforts of public policy and private agri-food and food & beverage processors at global, national, and community levels will be crucial to prevent a food crisis that may threaten the nutrition security of Asia, especially among the vulnerable populations. Which industry will face the biggest challenges and how will the structural change in the agro-food sector be driven? Will the changes in consumer consumption and purchasing behavior brought on by this pandemic become the new normal? How will Asia, with some parts of the continent already challenged to feed themselves, address the supply chain issues? Where will innovations and investments be needed? We welcome you to JOIN the DISCUSSION!

Background

The world has been dealing with the covid-19 crisis over the past 6 months, including the immediate issues of food supply chain resilience, along with the greater risk of hunger and food insecurity. These issues in turn have highlighted the urgency of addressing the pathways to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), especially SDG 2 to end hunger and malnutrition in all its forms and promote sustainable agriculture by 2030.

A recent report from the High Level Panel of Experts on Food Security and Nutrition (HLPE), the science-policy group of the UN Committee on World Food Security (CFS) has shown the multiple and complex challenges facing food systems, requiring data and actions from numerous parties which will need coordination to achieve optimal results.

Food supply systems are directly operated by private stakeholders, from small scale farmers and food processors, to large agriculture farms and trading, food processing, and distribution. This sector has experienced adverse impact from supply chain disruptions yet shown resilience during this crisis. While playing a vital role in managing the current crisis to meet consumption needs, investing, on-going adaptation and transformation of the sector will be key to future improvement in assuring food quality and security.

This Webinar builds on the foundation of the ILSI Asia COVID-19 Webinar Series: Part 1 - Food System Resilience: Global & Asia Perspectives on May 26, 2020 which considered the immediate effects of COVID-19 pandemic on the food system, initial responses from governments particularly in Asia and global agencies, lessons learnt and outlook for food system resilience, with likely long term impacts. A scientific paper from the meeting has been submitted for publication.

Two eminent speakers and a panel of experts will further explore challenges and opportunities for long term sustainability and resilience of the food system.
