REGIONAL EXPERT CONSULTATION ON AGRICULTURAL BIOTECHNOLOGY – SCOPING PARTNERSHIP TO IMPROVE LIVELIHOODS OF FARMERS IN ASIA-PACIFIC
Date: May 29-31, 2018
Location: Bangkok (Thailand)
APAARI will be organizing a “Regional Expert Consultation on Agricultural Biotechnology – Scoping Partnership to Improve Livelihoods of Farmers in Asia-Pacific” at Bangkok on May 29-31, 2018. The purpose of the Expert Consultation is to provide a platform to explore initiatives and mechanisms of sustainable partnership and networking for capacity and institutional building, developing regulatory framework, communication strategies, enabling policies for application of biotechnologies. It will also provide an opportunity for scoping the new and innovative ways of making investments in agricultural biotechnology to improve the livelihoods of farmers in Asia-Pacific region. The expected output of the Expert Consultation is to develop the sustainable partnership between public and private sectors for knowledge sharing on experiences and best practices, and AR4D collaboration to harness the potential of agricultural biotechnology in the region. New institutional public-private partnerships can also be established for co-investment in agricultural biotechnology through innovative funding mechanisms.
