About FSSIDS 2022

The Food Systems in Small Islands and Developing States (FSSIDS) network gathers academics and professionals with the common goal of improving the resilience and adaptability of food systems in small islands and developing states in the Asia Pacific region. For these maritime nations, the relatively small size of their land and their economies gives them unique set of vulnerabilities that makes their food systems particularly sensitive to shocks. 

The network held its first conference in September 2020, where participants from more than 10 countries in Southeast Asia and the Pacific, discussed and identified research gaps in issues related to food security in the region using a systems-based approach. Two years and one Covid pandemic later, FSSIDS 2022 will gather the growing multidisciplinary community of academics, policymakers, professionals and industrialists to build on the lessons learnt and advance the discussion on achieving food systems resilience in the face of environmental, socio-economic and political turbulence.
