Detailed summary
AIDF Food Security Summit: Asia is the must attend summit for NGO, UN, government and business organisations to build public-private partnerships with the vision of tackling food insecurity and malnutrition in the Asia-Pacific regions.
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 agenda has been produced in conjunction with partners and expert advisors from bodies including World Vision, UNESCAP, USAID and many more.
