Both chemical and microbiological risks are foreseen to impair food and feed safety as a consequence of climate change; in particular mycotoxins, marine biotoxins (phycotoxins), pesticide residues, trace metals and other chemicals could affect food and feed safety. Climate change also could alter the levels of pathogenic micro-organisms present in food.
Threats of climate change to food safety and security are interrelated and should be faced through an interdisciplinary approach involving food and agricultural science, environment, trade and policy. Therefore, food safety and security are closely linked in determining quality of life and climate change is affecting both.
The objectives of the conference are to exchange information on climate change issues related to food safety and security and to identify mitigation and adaptive strategies towards sustainable living, and research needs.
Renowned speakers will be invited from international and Southeast Asia, including Malaysia, in the fields of food safety and security from universities, research institutes, government agencies, industries and non-governmental organizations.
