The APO recently contributed an article, “Impacts of COVID-19 on the Agri-food Sector: Food Security Policies of Asian Productivity Organization Members” to The Journal of Agricultural Sciences (Vol. 15, No. 2, May 2020). The report suggests that the imminent, medium-, and long-term food security challenges due to COVID-19 vary among APO members, in addition to stressing the need for critical agricultural inputs, such as fertilizers and safe, quality seeds, to meet seasonal crop calendars. The longer COVID-19 containment measures stay in place, the more challenging the recovery process will be for ensuring smooth food production, accessibility to staple food and nutrition, and international agrifood trade.
