Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation for Southeast Asia (CChAMSEA) Framework News

SEARCA and the Regional SEARCA Alumni Association (RSAA) are organizing its 4th regional conference on 8-9 October 2018 at the SEARCA Headquarters with the theme "Food Security, Climate Change and Poverty Reduction: Initiatives towards Sustainable Agriculture and Resilient Communities in Southeast Asia." 

The conference generally aims to discuss initiatives of the SEARCA alumni towards addressing the pressing issues of food insecurity, poverty, and climate change impacts in the region. Specifically, it aims to provide an avenue for sharing initiatives and experiences in addressing food insecurity, climate change impacts, and poverty; facilitate sharing of information, practices, knowledge, and skills generated from research and development activities; and create awareness on the role of the SEARCA alumni in inclusive and sustainable agricultural and rural development.

After its organization in 2013, RSAA has already convened on three instances: first in Lao PDR (2013), second in Timor Leste (2015), and third in Indonesia (2016). These conferences served as a forum for alumni scholars to discuss ongoing global, regional, and national developments and to continue SEARCA's initiatives of bringing together the alumni in the region. The Conference is also scheduled in time for the 100th Loyalty Day Celebration of the University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB).
