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.
The event attracted over 200 attendees from more than 20 countries. See the HIGHLIGHTS VIDEO here.
‘‘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.’’
