INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON FOOD AND NUTRITION (ISFAN) 2015
FOOD AND NUTRITION FOR SUSTAINABLE HEALTH AND WELL-BEING
Balai Kartini, Jakarta, 3rd-5th June 2015
One of the challenges facing by the global community today is malnutrition (under- and over-nutrition). This problem is not merely among the lower socio-economic group but also among the upper middle socio-economic group, which mostly live in Asian and African countries. Malnutrition affects people health and well-being by infecting negatively on imune system, human physical and cognitive development; increasing suscepbility to communicable and non-communicable diseases (NCDs). Restricting the attainment of human potential and reducing productivity as well as poses a high burden in the form of social and economic consequences to individual, families, communities and nations.
Currently, as much as 63% of deaths caused by NCDs. Every year there are nearly 9 million people die caused by NCDs. Actually NCDs are preventable through better diet and lifestyle; they should be prevented to minimize the negative impacts.
In addition, climate change such as global warming is also the challenge. Climate change affects agricultural productivity that result in decreased food availability and safety, which lead to increase food prices and decrease food quality. Climate change also affects the environmental conditions such as poor water quality and sanitation, which is related to the of infectious diseases. Both low food availability and poor environmental condition will negatively effect on food and nutritio security status of the community.
These above problems should be eliminated through applying both appropriate sciences and innovations needed for prevention, promotion, and medication of the problems. For this purpose, a coheren food and nutrition policies and programs, which benefit to society in terms of social, economic, and environment (holistic approach) is required.
One of the ten commitments of the Rome Declaration on Nutrition (RDN) of the Second International Conference on Nutrition (ICN2, 2014), is improve nutrition by strengthening human and institutional capacities to address all forms of malnutritions through, inter alia, relevant scientific and socio-economic, research and development, innovation, and transfer of appropriate technologist on mutuali agreed terms and conditions. The RDN also commit to strengthen an facilitated contribution and action by all stakeholders to improve nutrition and promot collaboration with in an across countries.
Based on the above considerations the Food and Nutrition Society of Indonesia (PERGIZI PANGAN Indonesia) as nutrition and food experts association, in collaboration with Association of Nutrition Higher Education of Indonesia (AIPGI) will organize “International Symposium on Food and Nutrition (ISFAN) for Sustainable Health and Well-Being” in Balai Kartini, Jakarta, Indonesia.
