The two-day forum, hosted by Kasetsart University’s Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics on 18-19 April, sought to share capacities and provide graduate students and young researchers with opportunities to actively contribute towards enhanced food security, improved nutrition, sustainable agriculture, and food systems transformation in the region through good and quality research undertakings.

Following a nine-point implementation plan, Huynh underscored the need to advance sustainable food systems and healthy diets as the triple burden of malnutrition (overnutrition, undernutrition, and micronutrient deficiencies) continues to confront ASEAN member states, slowing down potential contributions toward the 2030 sustainable development agenda.
