Topic A :


1. Background

Food security, food safety and sustainable agricultural system in a broad-based rural development, offers the greatest potential to promote economic development and alleviate rural poverty on the widest scale. In addition, the need for adopting technology and infrastructure focusing upon the efficient and sustainable management of land and water resources and the decentralization of the decisions that affect rural populations, sustainable agricultural intensification is critical because the demand for food, fiber and other raw materials from rural areas is expected to at least double over the next thirty years while the land, water and other natural resources are going to be increasingly under pressure due to competing demand. At the same time, the development experience has shown that broad-based rural development requires not only successful macro-economic reforms but also policy and institutional reforms leading to decentralization, and participation and empowerment of stakeholders.
Lessons learned from current twin crisis, food and energy crisis, then the symposium on food and agriculture will focus on issues of food security, food safety and nutrition aspect and environmentally friendly agriculture.
The scientists from Japan and Indonesia with their competencies will be able to share their perspectives, research results and discuss both countries strategies and future collaborative programs to enhance the country efforts
