Existing ASEAN Initiatives/ Mechanism on Food Security ASEAN Food Security Reserve (AFSR) Board - A venue of information sharing on the region’s priority commodities ASEAN PLUS THREE Initiatives of the ASEAN Ministers on Agriculture and Forestry and the Ministers of Agriculture of the People’s Republic of China, Japan and the Republic of Korea (AMAF+3). Funded by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries & Forestry of Japan. East Asia Emergency Rice Reserve (EAERR) Project - To provide food aid for disaster areas and poverty alleviation purposes. Trade issues, i.e. price stabilization, is also explored. Permanent scheme APTERR (ASEAN Plus Three Emergency Rice Reserve) is on-going process. ASEAN Food Security Information System (AFSIS) Project - To establish an information network on food security among the countries and to conduct training in data collection and management. Additional elements in 2 nd phase: Early Warning Information System, Mutual Technical Cooperation and Preparation of Commodity Outlook Reports. One Vision, One Identity, One Community
6 Overview An ad-hoc Taskforce on Food Security was formed to develop detailed work plan on food security in the ASEAN region, comprising “ASEAN Integrated Food Security (AIFS) Framework” and “Strategic Plan of Action for Food Security (SPA-FS)” “AIFS Framework” and “SPA-FS” was reviewed and endorsed by ASEAN Ministers of Agriculture and Forestry (AMAF) in October 2008.
