A regional study on the food stocks and reserves of the Philippines and other Southeast Asian countries has been launched.
The research is being undertaken by the Philippine government-hosted Southeast Asian Regional Center for Graduate Study and Research in Agriculture (SEARCA) and member-institutions of the Southeast Asian University Consortium for Graduate Education in Agriculture and Natural Resources (UC).
The UC is a network of universities in SEAMEO countries, Canada, Germany, and Japan.
… Its principal researcher is Dr. Paul Teng of the Centre for Non-Traditional Security Studies of the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies, Nanyang Technological University in Singapore and a SEARCA senior fellow on food security.
“Given the potential role that stocks and reserves can play to stabilize food availability at the country and regional levels, it is important to study the policies, processes, and technologies that allow this to be a viable strategy in Southeast Asia,” Teng said.
