Greening Agri-food Systems, Ensuring Rural Sustainability and Promoting Healthy Socioeconomic Transformation in South-East Asia

Don't miss this conference where academics, farmer groups, governments, regional and international agency representatives will attend with 30 to 40 full paper presentations, special panels and policy dialogues over 3 days in plenary/parallel sessions and side events.

Modern, conventional agriculture integrated with a global agri-food system contributes to many global environmental problems while malnutrition, hunger and poverty persist amid other serious socioeconomic and health concerns in Southeast Asia. Some current practices may even be endangering future food security by undermining the ecological basis of the global food system.

This regional multidisciplinary academic conference aims to help address these challenges through new research, academic reforms, learning activities and policy dialogue.

Conference proceedings will be published to provide good multi-disciplinary scientific evidence as a basis for more informed decision-making among ASEAN policy-makers, government agencies, university administrators, international organizations, donors and others.

Pre-registration is required. Please find the registration form and more information here.
