While the agri-food sector is considered essential in the context of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, critical gaps remain that could further complicate the food security picture not only locally but also on a global scale. The Philippines, while not traditionally facing food shortages, is a major food importer that is vulnerable to the economic downturns and supply chain disruptions brought about by the pandemic. If left unchecked, access to adequate, affordable, and nutritious food may become harder. Food growers and policymakers are now paying closer attention to current and emerging trends that will help tackle post-pandemic food security challenges.
In this webinar, you will learn how COVID-19 affects the complex food system with particular emphasis on the domestic agricultural value chain, trends and innovations that could influence sustainable food supply after the pandemic, and policy recommendations to achieve the overall development objectives in the agri-food sector.
