Building partnerships to ensure food, agriculture and nutrition security
Bangkok, 26-27 November 2013
AIDF Food Security Summit: Asia 2013 is hosted at UNCC in Bangkok, Thailand on the 26-27 November 2013.
AIDF serves as a leading platform to build collaboration amongst stakeholders to achieve a vision of agriculture as a driver of food security, environmental sustainability and economic opportunity. AIDF is the must attend summit for NGO, UN, government and business organisations to build public-private partnerships.
Following successful events in Geneva and Washington DC, 1,000 participants from around the world came together for the inaugural AIDF Asia-Pacific on the 30-31 January 2013 in Bangkok. Unique to the Asia-Pacific region, AIDF brought together a large number of key practitioners and was met with widespread support. The forum highlighted a need for ongoing networking, targeted dialogue and an exploration of strategic alliances on a more intimate level.
In response to this we are hosting the AIDF Food Security Summit: Asia 2013, a two day summit that will feature high-level delegates and continue important discussions started at AIDF Asia-Pacific, with a particular focus on the specific regional issues surrounding food security, agriculture and malnutrition.
‘‘Governments, companies, international agencies and civil society groups are looking for new approaches to food security and agricultural growth, leveraging new investments while ensuring sustainability for communities and the environment.’’
