Background

There is growing recognition that in our increasingly urbanized world, there are widening gaps in nutrition well-being across populations. This has given rise to concerns about public health issues related to diet and lifestyle; food and nutrition security; as well as the environment and sustainability. Advances in nutrition science and knowledge, and innovations in technology are driving governments to provide more robust policy guidance, ignite research and initiate new approaches towards reshaping consumers' dietary practices.

However, new media and globalized channels of communication have unfortunately allowed misinformation to proliferate, including misinformation in the areas of food, nutrition and technological innovations in the food supply chain. This has generated widespread public confusion, misunderstanding, and misleading guidance for consumers.

In this fast-evolving landscape, it is even more critical for effective public policy to be informed by evidence-based science. This in turn depends on scientists and experts to conduct research, evaluate results, and communicate their findings to stakeholders for sound decision-making.

This 2-part webinar series to be organized on October 15 and October 23, will bring eminent researchers, thought-leaders in nutrition science, and experienced science communication experts to share their insights, discuss appropriate dietary guidance, and recommend strategies for translating evidence-based science into effective public health policies and consumer guidance.

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.

There is growing recognition that in our increasingly urbanized world, there are widening gaps in nutrition well-being across populations.
