That the 57% of global population lives in Asia and Pacific region and the 62% of the world’s under-nourished is in the same region, meeting future food security is deemed critical. This is best done through obtaining more accurate agricultural statistics for taking informed decisions.

Hence, delegates from 20 member states of Asia Pacific Commission on Agricultural Statistics (APCAS) met at Thimphu to review the region’s preparedness in achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. The five-day meeting deliberated on the challenges of meeting the information needs of the agriculture sector to better monitor and respond to patterns of hunger, food insecurity and malnutrition while highlighting new methodologies and initiatives that will help them achieve SDGs.
