Sustainable Agro Food

Sustainable Agro Food Platform


Agriculture is the single largest employer in the world, providing livelihoods for 40 percent of today’s global population. It is the largest source of income and jobs for poor rural households. However, Asia remains the continent with the most hungry people – two thirds of the total. One in four of the world’s children suffer stunted growth. In developing countries the proportion can rise to one in three.

500 million small farms worldwide, most still rainfed, provide up to 80 per cent of food consumed in a large part of the developing world. Investing in small-holder women and men is an important way to increase food security and nutrition for the poorest (SDG 2), as well as food production for local and global markets. While food security is one of the most important Sustainable Development Goal, Increasing Agro-food chemical contaminations have highly effected lives on earth (SDG 15) and lives under the seas   (SDG 14). 

Sustainable Agro Food (SAF) Platform has been initiated to empower 100,000 small-holder families to achieve sustainable food and agriculture production, assuring safe food value chain from producers to the end consumers, and strengthening up food value chain links to mutually achieve SDGs.

Sustainable Agro Food Platform participates in The Asia-Pacific Business Forum (APBF) 2018

The United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP), in partnership with Cyberport and the Innovation and Technology Bureau of HKSAR Government, held the Asia-Pacific Business Forum (APBF) 2018 last April 10-11 in Hong Kong. 

AFMA served as Chair of the Task Force on Agriculture and Food.

With the theme on “Harnessing Business to Achieve the Sustainable Development Goals through Technology, Innovation and Financing”, the forum focused on how business engagements can enhance the achievement of inclusive and sustainable development in the Asia-Pacific region. Discussions were anchored on initiating private sector-led innovation and technology to promote the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development; improving access to finance to facilitate income generation; as well as identifying innovative solutions to address challenges in achieving the SDGs. 

The dialogue was preceded by the 5th Meeting of the ESCAP Sustainable Business Network (ESBN)

With the Task Force’s objective of achieving SDG No. 2: zero hunger, Sustainable Agro Food Platform will continue our commitment to advancing sustainable agriculture and food safety.

Sustainable Tourism, Production and Consumption that can change the world in the better ways. To end the poverty and hunger, to ensure responsible production and consumption and prolong the life on the land, the local community is protecting the source of natural clean water with co-creation and management, where the origin of watershed forest is preserved and prolonged for our future generation.
