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!
