High level policy dialogue in Bangkok

A high level policy dialogue on 'Investment in Agricultural Research for Sustainable Development in the Asia-Pacific Region' will take place in Bangkok, Thailand, from December 8-9 2015.

The dialogue is being organised by the Asia-Pacific Association of Agricultural Research Institutions (APAARI) in partnership with the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR), Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations-Regional Office for Asia-Pacific (FAO-RAP), Global Forum on Agricultural Research (GFAR) and the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), with the major sponsorship from the Syngenta Foundation.

Its purpose is to create awareness on promoting long-term investment in agricultural research and innovations for sustainable development through appropriate policies and strategies, and to catalyze policy/decision makers, re-sensitize AR4D organizations, and create an environment for increased/ improved resource allocation and policy support for agricultural research and innovations for development (ARI4D) in the Asia-Pacific region. The concept note and further information are available at http://www.apaari.org/events/hlpd2015.html.

The major focus of the dialogue will be on awareness of the importance of AR4D; assessment of the current levels of capacities, disparities and trends in investment; importance of and need for enhanced and improved investments in AR4D; scoping and prioritization of AR4D areas for investment; promoting skills and capacities to attract, mobilize and utilize investments; realizing the need for paradigm shift from AR4D to ARI4D and research to knowledge; and innovative funding mechanisms to enhance/ improve investment.

An additional important feature of this event is the senior level participation from diverse stakeholder constituencies in both the public and private sectors at national, regional and international levels.

About 120 participants are expected to attend, which include ministers and other senior level policy makers; NARS leaders and international experts from CGIAR, IARCs, ARIs; representatives of CSOs (NGOs, FOs), foundations, funding and donor agencies, and private sector, innovative farmers, women and youth groups.

Interested individuals and organizations are encouraged to participate and they can register their interest with Dr Jawahar Karihaloo (j.karihaloo@apaari.org).
