Food and Agriculture in Asia: Investing in Resilience, Health, and Sustainability

As the world reels from multiple crises in rapid succession, the opportunities to set food systems on a more sustainable and equitable path have never been more favorable, and in turn, the importance of multi-stakeholder convenings cannot be understated. 

Since 2018, the Milken Institute Asia Center has partnered with our colleagues in Feeding Change to host multiple public and private convenings with leading investors, industry players, entrepreneurs, and regulators in food and agriculture. These sessions have participants engaging in candid discussions on the systemic challenges confronting food systems, but also the vast opportunities in innovation and investment which accompany each challenge.

Our goal is to spur ideas and action to improve global food systems by spotlighting agrifood-tech innovators, scaling sustainable and resilient processes and practices, encouraging the culture of good nutrition and healthy foods, and unlocking private investments in promising areas.

This report sets out to elevate the key insights from speakers at the Milken Institute’s public convenings, as well as participants from private discussions, supplemented with insights from external interviewees, and desktop research.
