Officials To Meet In Thailand To Discuss Food Demands, Nutrition Gaps In Asia Pacific

“Representatives of the U.N., governments, [non-governmental organizations (NGOs)] and private sector farming are expected to gather in Bangkok, Thailand, on [November 26] for a two-day forum on how to fill the Asia-Pacific’s growing food demands and nutrition gaps in a region more devastated by natural disasters than any other worldwide,” IRIN reports. “Forum topics will range from best health interventions in the critical first 1,000 days of a child’s life (conception to age two) to the potential of oil and rice fortification for boosting micronutrient intake,” the news service notes (11/25).
