LONDON – Market Publishers Ltd is excited to call for participation in The 2nd Annual AIDF Food Security Summit: Asia 2014, taking place from in Jakarta on the 8th and 9th October 2014.
As the global population reached 7 billion, it has had profound implications for development, with considerable effects on urbanization, sustainability and also access to youth empowerment and health services. One of the major implications of overpopulation is significant water and food shortage. In spite of the fact that the economies of the APAC region far out-performing the world’s average economic development, more than 700 million people in the APAC region still live in abject poverty (defined as living on less than USD 1.25 per day).
There are numerous reasons for food insecurity including, among others, rapidly growing number of the global population coupled with increasing consumerism, which naturally is likely to turn out in surging demand for food. On the whole, according to FAO, the world demand for food is anticipated to increase by around 60% by 2050.
The two day summit The 2nd Annual AIDF Food Security Summit: Asia 2014 will unite more than 300 regional governments, NGOs, UN and intergovernmental agencies, investors, research institutes and private sector companies, who will gather to discuss burning issues related to the food security in agriculture and nutrition sectors.
