The World Benchmarking Alliance (WBA) and our Ally Center for Indonesian Policy Studies (CIPS) organized two sessions of the ASEAN Food Systems Policy CoLAB that took place online on 29 July 2021 and 14 September 2021. Stakeholders from the private sector, research institutions and international organizations came together to explore the challenges in addressing issues related to sustainable agriculture among small scale farmers and nutrition in Southeast Asia.
The discussion also explored existing policy gaps within relevant regional policy frameworks, including the ASEAN Integrated Food Security Framework (AIFS) and Strategic Plan of Action on Food Security in the ASEAN Region (SPA-FS) 2021-2025; ASEAN Regional Guidelines on Food Security and Nutrition Policy. Barriers to creating an enabling environment for sustainable agriculture among small-scale producers and nutritious consumption were identified.
