Description:Operational Plan for Sustainable Food Security in Asia and the Pacific

This paper lays out the operational plan of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to help Asia and the Pacific achieve sustainable food security. The operational plan is based on the premise the region's long-term food security is at risk. This is due to the high vulnerability in the global and regional food supply and market systems, projected increases in food demand, sustainability concerns from land and water constraints, and unfolding climate change impacts. ADB recognizes sustainable food security as a crucial element of its long-term strategic framework, Strategy 2020 (ADB 2008a) in freeing Asia from from poverty. The operational plan thus accords priority to achieving sustainable food security in Asia and the Pacific. The goal is to improve the availability of, and access to, adequate and safe food in a sustainable manner, especially for the large number of poor, women, and other vulnerable groups in the region.
