KUCHING: Premier Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg is expected to open the Congress on Sustainable Agriculture and Food Security (COSAFS) 2022 which will be held from Sept 21-24 at the Waterfront Hotel here.

COSAFS 2022 is organised by Universiti Putra Malaysia Kampus Bintulu (UPMKB) in collaboration with the Ministry of Modernisation of Agriculture and Regional Development with the theme ‘’People, Planet, and Profit’.

Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) said the congress would provide a forum to learn about sustainable farming techniques, innovation and technology, community food systems, national and global food policies as well as any programme that promotes sustainable agriculture and food security.

“The congress will also provide producers, researchers, consumers, organisations, institutions, corporate bodies, and communities the opportunity to strengthen alliances towards achieving sustainable agriculture and becoming a net food exporter.

“The congress is an umbrella of three concurrent international conferences namely International Scientific Conference on Indigenous Crops 2022 (ISCIC2022), International Conference on Fisheries and Animal Sciences 2022 (FISAS2022) and International Conference on Food and Industrial Crops 2022 (ICFIC2022),” it said.

Among the objectives for the COSAFS 2022 are to provide a platform to exchange knowledge between conference participants, to promote and strengthen international and national collaborations in sustainable agriculture and food security as well as to identify and promote smart agriculture solutions for the development of sustainable agriculture and food security.
