The 2nd International Conference on ARD aims to provide a venue for sharing the wide and diverse knowledge pool on ARD that exists within and beyond the Southeast Asian region. Specific objectives include the following:

Highlight creative and innovative technological and practical approaches in the various processes comprising the agricultural system, spanning the entire agricultural value chain from production through to post-harvest, processing, marketing, transport and logistics;

Showcase and derive useful lessons from institutional successes (and failures) in the management of the agricultural system and rural communities, including governance and value chain relationships; and

Draw evidence-based policy implications from the knowledge exchange, to guide regional, national and sub-national policies and initiatives for ARD in the context of intensified regional cooperation and integration.

The Conference is expected to produce useful information about the current situation and gaps on ARD in the region and lead to the identification of policy options for decision-makers or investment opportunities for the private sector. Apart from preparing the Overall Proceedings of the Conference, policy briefs, monographs and journal articles will be produced focusing on key policy implications and recommendations towards achieving resilience, inclusiveness and integration of the agriculture sector in the region
