Regional Training Workshop on Sustainable Food Systems and Value Chain

21/05/2018-25/05/2018 Bangkok, Thailand



This regional course is designed first and foremost for FAO staff at the Sub-regional Office and the country offices, but will be open to country project counterparts and a limited number of colleagues from partner organizations working on food systems development. It aims to achieve three objectives:

  1. To promote food systems thinking within FAO;
  2. To operationalize food systems thinking through the sustainable food value chains development approach;
  3. To advocate for integrated food system solutions and better-aligned programmes across technical disciplines.

The course will equip trainees with innovative and systemic ways of addressing food-related challenges. It will help them better comprehend their areas of specialization as part of a complex, adaptive food system, and thus increase their understanding of how they influence, and are influenced by, other parts of the food system. Furthermore, the course will provide the tools needed to measure, analyze and improve the performance of a food system using systems thinking.
