				Webinar series - Hero 1_ d5
	

BACKGROUND 

COVID-19 has through its unrelenting spread over the past months, affected millions around the world. Besides unprecedented governments measures through social and public health systems to contain the extensive illness and death tragedies, we are seeing damages to vast sectors of industries that are pillars to trade and economy of most countries, such as food and supply chains, jobs, commerce, education, tourism and etc.

This webinar is one of a series organized by the International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI) and its entities in Asia to share pertinent aspects and insights in science, food resilience, health research, and measures, as well as technological developments that can be harnessed to mitigate and address the longer-term impact of COVID-19.

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 current global food system has been undergoing a dynamic transformation under the thrust of rapid evolution of technologies and advancing pace of innovations. Concurrently, recognition of widening gaps in nutrition wellbeing across populations in the increasingly urbanized and globalized world has given rise to concerns, on dietary related public health issues, food and nutrition security, as well as environmental sustainability. These have ignited and driven interest and research to improve our food system and in reshaping dietary behaviour, with aims toward achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 2030.

Technological advances in the past decade have also ushered in new media landscape with an array of creative platforms for communication. These have unfortunately become fodders for pseudo-science and misinformation that generate widespread public confusion, misunderstanding and misleading guidance for consumers, especially pertaining to food, nutrition and food supply chain technological innovations.

In this context, this 1-day symposium, 3rd in a series on food and technologies organized by ILSI SEA Region will bring together eminent international and regional experts, from food & nutritional science to health, economic & socio-communication researchers and planner, to share and deliberate on development that will impact our food consumption, preventative health programs and sustainable public health measures.

OBJECTIVES

This 1-day symposium aims to:

  • Explore current nutritional science, continuum from nutrients research to public health guidance
  • Discuss current protein trend, optimal diet and sustainability
  • Gain insights on the emerging research and innovations impacting food systems and approaches to successful translation of research to application
  • Provide guidance and strategies in delivering credible science and mitigating misinformation in the evolving consumer, technology and media landscape
  • Offer an interdisciplinary platform to explore opportunities to attain healthy diets and sustainable food system to fulfil SDGs by 2030
