The world is undergoing profound changes and facing severe challenges. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, climate disasters, regional conflicts and violence, the global economy is confronted with the greatest challenges in decades. Scientists worldwide shoulder a mission to provide innovative strategies to address emerging and potential challenges. As the most active and innovative part of the community, young scientists should take the responsibility of promoting global dialogue and multilateral cooperation, and addressing global food risk and inequality issues.
Governments, scientists, and international institutes around the world are working together to provide innovative strategies to address emerging and potential challenges. The young generation plays an important role in the governance of current global affairs, and will also be the future decision-makers in global affairs. Young scientists are an important force in continuing to promote global dialogue and multilateral cooperation, and are the most active and innovative force in tackling global food and inequality issues.
Global Food Security Association for Young Scientists aims to bring together scholars, educators and innovators working on all aspects of global food security worldwide. We propose the following actions.
We are committed to promoting information exchange and resource sharing for addressing food security issues. As the outstanding ones and opinion leaders of the young generation, young scientists from different regions and countries shall uphold an open and inclusive mind, ready to popularize healthy diet patterns, actively improve the collection and analysis of food production and consumption data and share research findings across worldwide.
We are committed to promoting the transition and optimization of global agri-food system. We shall make use of our expertise to address the crucial problems of global food security due to climate change and resource constraints, disasters and conflicts, assess the effectiveness of innovative food security programs including new production technology promotion and grain saving and loss reduction, and promote the application of innovations to accelerate the transition of global agri-food system.
We are committed to serve as an intellectual support for scientific decision-making on global food security. We shall dive into the fields, production workshops, and rural communities to discover real-life problems relating to the production, distribution and consumption of food, carry out high-quality survey and research, and strive to provide knowledge and consultation for communities and enterprises, and to offer decision-making support for governments and international institutions.
We are committed to grow in the practice of implementing food security initiatives. As participants in global food security governance and decision-makers for the future, we shall take the lead of making changes from small things and influence others, with an aim of aligning our sense of responsibility with the common development of all humankind, and advance our global vision, leadership, and competence through the personal practice in promoting food security.
