APEC Climate Symposium 2017

APEC Climate Center (APCC) held the APEC Climate Symposium 2017 with Vietnam’s Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MONRE) and the National Hydro-Meteorological Service of Viet Nam (NHMS) in Can Tho, Viet Nam from August 18 to 20, 2017. The theme of this year’s symposium, reflecting one of the most central concerns of 21st Century, is Building Resilient Agro-Food Systems from Production to Consumption: Interdisciplinary Approaches for Sustainable Food Security Using Climate Information

Period & Venue

18 - 20 August 2017 / Muong Thanh Luxury Hotel, Can Tho, Viet Nam

Keynote Session: Fortifying Food Security by Climate-Smart Food Systems

Chaired by Dr. Jin Ho Yoo,  Head of Climate Prediction Department of APEC Climate Center

Efforts to address the relationship between climate and food availability have predominantly focused on primary economy sectors such as agriculture and fisheries. While issues of production remain critical, it is imperative to address the adverse impacts of climate change on other, often sidelined, components of food security. Climate change adaptation can be achieved effectively through holistic approaches encompassing all dimensions of food security. The keynote presenters will provide an overview of global and regional issues of food security threatened by climate change and address strategies to help climate proof food supply chains.

Session I: Increasing Sustainable Agricultural Production using Climate Information

Chaired by Dr. Jong Ahn Chun, Research Fellow of Climate Application Team of APEC Climate Center

Given that agricultural production systems are highly sensitive to climactic factors, it is critical to develop and use reliable climate information to better anticipate agricultural consequences of climactic events. Within this changing climate, sustainability depends on resilience, which may be obtained through the efficient use of climate information in agricultural production and establishing successful short- and long-term adaptation measures. This session will therefore focus on the opportunities and challenges for the utilization of climate information to increase agricultural production and help build food security.

Session II: Beyond Growth: Building Resilient Post-Production Food Systems

Chaired by Prof. Kyeong-Hwan Lee, Professor, Department of Bioenergy Science and Technology, Chonnam National University

In addressing food security from a multi-sectoral approach, a value chain approach is useful in analyzing climate risks, as it looks beyond production and fosters a more systemic approach to risk management.This is pivotal when actors at all levels of agricultural value chains are impacted by climate change, yet these impacts are as varied and complex as the actors themselves. In particular, prioritizing climate resilience in supply and value chains empowers practical and economically sound approaches to reducing poverty sustainably and increasing food security beyond agricultural production. Short- and long-term enhanced climate information can combined with information on food supply, to provide critical climate information for enhanced decision-making. Companies must also play a central role, both as critical sources of information and as catalysts for change. This session will explore the vulnerabilities of value chains to climactic variation and investigate how promoting climate resilience (in households, transporting, waste management, recycling etc.) through the use of climate information can enhance food security.

Session III: Large-scale Holistic Approach to Climate Risk Management

Chaired by Dr. Govindarajalu Srinivasan, Chief Scientist, Regional Integration Multi-Hazard Early Warning System for Africa and Asia

As disaster management has evolved, the Asia-Pacific region has seen a paradigm shift from response-recovery governance to a risk-sensitive development approach. Agriculture and food production is no exception, with climate-related hazards due to climate variability and change, including extreme weather disasters, resulting in wide-scale damage and hindered socio-economic development. Bottom-up and top-down approaches that use climate information can be paired for large-scale change in agricultural risk management. Community-level educational and training programs, such as those for farmers, are central to raising awareness of climate-related risks and lead to a better understanding of benefits from basic climate risk managements. At higher levels, holistic approaches to reduce the risks associated with climate variability and change are necessary to effectively enhance resilience of provinces or nations. In this session, success cases to implement climate-related risk management measures at different scales will be introduced and discussed.
