Market Publishers Ltd is announced as a media partner of The 2nd Annual AIDF Food Security Summit: Asia 2014, which will take place in Jakarta on the 8th and 9th October 2014.
Recently, the number of the world population has surpassed the 7 billion mark, which resulted in significant effects on various life aspects including, among others, health services, urbanization, food security. One of the key implications of the fast-growing world population is serious water and food shortages. Despite the high rates of the economic development (which are higher than the world’s average) of the economies in the APAC region, more than 700 million people still live in abject poverty in the APAC region.
There is a wide range of reasons for food insecurity including, among others, rapidly-growing global population along with increasing consumerism, which naturally will likely result in the global surging demand for food. According to FAO, the worldwide demand for food is forecast to increase by nearly 60% by 2050.
The two-day summit The 2nd Annual AIDF Food Security Summit: Asia 2014 will unite more than 300 regional governments, UN and intergovernmental agencies, NGOs, investors, private sector companies and research institutes, who will gather to give particular attention to the burning issues associated with the food security in agriculture and nutrition sectors.
