Nurturing partnerships: A process of cross-fertilisation to strengthen Asian food security

Nurturing partnerships: A process of cross-fertilisation to strengthen Asian food security

The Aid & International Development Forum report has been produced based on contributions from world-leading experts including FAO, ADB, UNESCAP, WFP, GAIN, IRRI and others.

In recent decades the Asia Pacific region has achieved remarkable results in economic growth and in reducing poverty and hunger but it has come at a cost to the environment and resulted in an unsustainable use of natural resources.

Although Asia’s undernourishment rate has fallen from 34 per cent and is anticipated to be at 16 per cent in 2015, with almost one in seven people still suffering chronic hunger, the region is home to almost two-thirds of the world’s chronically hungry population.

With this paper, AIDF aims to facilitate the sharing of knowledge, innovations, good practices, and lessons on food security and to generate greater interest and action on food security at every front using their unique platform.
