MALAYSIA hosts some 170,000 refugees and asylum seekers, 44,880 of them below the age of 18.

A RECENT European Union (EU) plan proposing to restrict palm oil in its biofuel programme has once again put the palm oil industry into public scrutiny, requiring palm oil producers to demonstrate their commitment to sustainable production.

Seeds of Change

18 December 2018
THE agriculture sector needs to increase food production by 70 per cent in order to adequately “feed” the global population in 2050. This estimate was made by the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) in its report on How to Feed the World in 2050. Although there is still ample land resources available for crop production,…

Private sector boost for agriculture

17 July 2018
WEATHER-RELATED disasters linked to climate change have contributed to the rise in food insecurity. The Philippines is one of the most disaster-prone countries in Southeast Asia with an average of 20 typhoons making landfall every year, which disrupts the volume of agricultural production, exposing farmers to high vulnerability and causing fatalities. Across Southeast Asia, there…

Choosing to Eat Healthy

WHEN the country gained its independence, agriculture, in particular rubber, was one of the twin pillars of the economy.   From the 1960s to the 1980s, the agricultural sector, which consisted largely of commercial crops such as rubber, cocoa and oil palm, contributed about 20 per cent of our gross domestic product (GDP), while its…

Food Security in Cities

18 April 2017
BY 2050, 66 per cent of the world’s population is estimated to reside in urban areas. While cities strive to urbanise, the abundance of food and attitude of consumers in urban areas are leading causes of food waste. In developing areas, low-income households view food wastage as unacceptable. As we develop, there seems to be…

Walaupun sektor pertanian menyebabkan peningkatan GHG, perubahan iklim turut memberikan ancaman terhadap jaminan keselamatan makanan. Hubung kait ini tidak dapat dielakkan kerana pertanian memerlukan sistem pengairan. Malah pergantungan ini direkodkan seawal 3100 SM hingga 1075 SM dalam lembaran sejarah penduduk Mesir kuno di lembah Nil dan Tigris-Euphrates. Mutakhir ini, bagi menjamin sistem pengairan yang lengkap,…
