4th ARoFIIN Roundtable

Date: 26 July 2018

Time: 12:00pm – 5:00pm

Venue: Jakarta, Indonesia



The 4th ARoFIIN Roundtable is planned for 26 July 2018 in Jakarta, Indonesia to discuss progress and identify strategies aimed at tackling the double burden of malnutrition.

Further to the successful launch of the report on “Tackling Obesity in ASEAN” in 2017 across several Asian countries and a series of follow-up workshops that identified tailored interventions to improve health in children; the roundtable will showcase some pilot initiatives that will be driven collectively by various stakeholders.

In parallel, the session will delve deeper in the area of undernutrition and micronutrient deficiencies in Asia and explore opportunities to combat the growing pandemic in the region.

The 4th ARoFIIN roundtable aims to gather academia, civil societies, the public and private sectors from across the region to discuss and initiate multi-stakeholder strategies that drive food innovation, a positive shift in consumer behaviour and therefore fixing the broken food system to end all forms of malnutrition.

A tentative agenda and details of the event will be shared ahead of the roundtable in due course.
