    • I would like to share my experience about this problem in Thailand. It may be some positive way, although Thailand is an agricultural society, which is the economic modern development has concentrated only in metropolitans’ areas in urban. And the outer area is a rural area where the majority of the population is earning in rice farming and other agricultural work.

      Most of the children labored in agriculture are within their families. At the right age and to be grown enough to help their parents. At the same time, that's not quite for employment, it's more like using labor to work in the house. Therefore, there is no problem of slavery or exploitation of children that could endanger their lives and minds. In the case of partial child labor, however, it is only characteristic of the request for help: to harvest agricultural produce to sell, where wages are fair and agreeable on both sides. Especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, child labor during this period is necessary and more appropriate than adults to work in the local food system. I don't think there's a problem until the end of child labor in agriculture in Thailand.

    • In the crisis of the COVID epidemic, there is a shift in the raw materials and ingredients businesses that will be used for cooking across the country. The food business was most affected by the crisis of interconnected transport interruption and short-term fluctuations of food market. All countries have turned to domestic or regional consumers as humans still have to consume three meals a day to survive.

      Local food is the only way for all countries, even higher or more expensive than ever. But there is no other choice. Therefore, Real-time monitoring should be designed and utilized to strengthen of existing local food production such as the cop strategies, climate, conflict data of local food raw materials and ingredients, price information, and other factors to identify the likelihood of acute food insecurity and help policy makers enact timely policy responses for early warning systems and support preventative policy responses to food crisis risk in each local area.

    • I am interested to the initiative for the Sustainable Infrastructure Community of Learners. Because I have the project which are studied and more significant continental effort after the spreading of COVID-19, which it’s might be applied in the part of the strategic planning of SDG 2030 platforms as the infrastructure assets and development sites of cultivation soil or farming land may be rehabilitated and retrofitted for eco-efficiency for communities inclusive infrastructure to developed land. For example, the new normal packaging designed from natural resources during the Covid-19 outbreak as for Grab and Go concept.

    • "Organic farming to achieve SDG#2"

      Our main research area is agricultural food security for environmental conservative in accordance with the UN agenda for sustainable development 2030 .Mission of Topic # 2 Zero Hunger supports the operations to achieve the goals.  Which we believe that if the main factors of which used in the cultivation are no toxic contamination.  Food production for human will be saved, including to the environment as well.

      By the organic farming concept to improve the soil quality, it’s can be solved by agricultural nature as organic way in rotation crop and seeking the healthy plants , of which for food safety and friendly environment.  Moreover for solving the other soil problems of which, we continue to conduct research to be the comprehensive and innovative, meet international criteria, to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
