    logo Sea Eu Net
    This report is an output from the European funded Sea EU Net project based on a series of expert workshops organized from 2008 to 2017” and can be a useful tool for teams of researchers wishing to identify themes and sources of funding for regional research in Southeast Asia on the topic « food security and safety » : « Helping to invent ecologically intensive agriculture to feed Europe and South-East Asia”; “Innovating, to make food accessible, varied and safe”; “Foreseeing and managing infectious disease risks linked to wildlife and domestic animals ; and promote the creation of Europe- Southeast Asia consortium.
  • Europe – Southeast Asia cooperation in Science and Technology

    Sea eu net
    The first phase of the SEA-EU-NET project did much to establish science, technology and innovation cooperation between the EU and ASEAN. One of the primary aims of the second phase of the project, running until September 2016, is to stimulate deeper and more productive cooperation in three global societal challenges; health, food and water. This report serves to the identify the specific topics within each challenge that hold the greatest potential for collaboration, based on the extent of the need, the existence of research capabilities and existing links, and the level of commitment from each region.
  • An unlimited growth? : toward a new geography of livestock farming in Vietnam, by Jean-Daniel Cesaro

    logo Cirad
    Since the 1990’s, livestock sector in Vietnam has been deeply changing. Meat and milk productions are mouving from a mixed farming system towards a more intensive and industrialized production model. Concentrated animal feeding operations are progressively replacing small-scale livestock farming. This transition raises specific spatial issues. Expansion of urban areas, location of feed mills in rural areas, relocation of intensive production areas lead to a complete reorganization of the geography of livestock sector in Vietnam. This spatial dynamic is becoming an issue, especially since Vietnam has joined WTO in 2007. This thesis focuses on three districts – Thong Nhat, Mai Son et Ba Vì – where livestock plays a major role in local development. We show that spatial concentration of industrial production systems occurs in a limited number of regions. This dynamics appears to be organized by a close partnership between local authorities and private firms, with a focus on economic benefit. However, those stakeholders seem not to be in condition to manage all medium term impacts of this concentration on anthroposystem sustainability. Most of the challenges related to the Environmental management of industrial livestock systems remains in the hands of local communities. The role of agriculture progressively evolves towards the recycling of industrial livestock systems effluents.
  • A new publication available on climate smart rice cropping systems in Vietnam

    logo Cansea
    Vietnam is the 4th rice producer with 40 million tons of paddy and ranks as the 2nd largest global exporter, selling ~ 8 million tons of milled rice (2014). Even if new exporters like Cambodia and Myanmar arise, if several importing countries in Africa have initiated support policy to reduce their food dependency, maintaining the Vietnamese exports capacity to address growing demands from China and developing countries in Middle East and Africa is of utmost importance to prevent global market crisis. Meanwhile, rice farming is facing a dual challenge of delivering sufficient and nutritious food to meet the projected demands of population growth and markets, and overcoming issues such as climate change, soil fertility depletion and water scarcity through sustainable agricultural intensification. The aim of this document is to introduce adaptation measures that have the potential, in the multiple Vietnamese rice agro-ecosystems, with specific emphasis on Mekong River Delta, to assist in designing a new generation of rice farming systems with strengthened resilience and adaptation capacity in front of climate change, enhancing natural capital and ecosystem services.

  • A paper review antimicrobial policy interventions in food animal production in South East Asia

    logo Grease
    Over recent decades, profound changes in food production and feeding regimens have had a major effect on the use of antibiotics in livestock and aquaculture farms. Most SEAR countries have experienced considerable growth in population, combined with improved living standards for part of the population. This situation induces a growing demand for animal proteins resulting in intensive breeding of pigs, poultry, and fish, with the routine use of antibiotics as growth promoters. The lack or weakness of regulations, adequate policies, and implementation of standards for antibiotic use in the food animal sector, together with low standards of biosecurity, hygiene, and sanitation, have accelerated the emergence and dissemination of antibiotic resistance.
  • Translating Science and Engaging Stakeholders.
