During a public health emergency, smooth functioning of the food sector is vital. At the same time, the sector is highly vulnerable to disruptions due to the high interdependency of the players involved. Therefore, it is important for key actors from the governments, private sector, international organisations, and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to work together in a co-ordinated way.
ASEF Public Health Network will organise a Strategy Development Workshop on Pandemic Preparedness and Response for Food Supply Security in Vientiane, Lao PDR (22 – 23 October 2012). The Workshop will address issues related to preparedness and response for secured food supply particularly using ASEF-ASAP (Accurate Scenarios Active Preparedness) scenarios for pandemic preparedness.
The participants are experts from the food industry, relevant international organisations, government institutions, and civil society organisations.
After the workshop, the outcomes will be published on this page.
