Call For Papers

The third in the pace setting series of symposia; SEAVEG, will focus on improved nutrition and livelihoods in Southeast Asia. This symposium will highlight the critical importance of vegetables in Southeast Asia and identify technologies for increased vegetable production, marketing and consumption; to realize the potential of providing nutrition to rapidly growing and increasingly urbanised populations. SEAVEG 2016 will focus on the role of vegetables to nurture a balanced and nutritious diet, helping to alleviate micronutrient malnutrition and assure better health. Vegetables are high value crops and thus growers are receptive to acquiring skills and technologies to ensure sustainable productivity of quality vegetables to satisfy market demand, hence contributing to increased incomes and improved livelihoods. Further, vegetables require careful maintenance and are often managed by women; who are also responsible for household nutrition; therefore benefits in production and vegetable affordability directly benefit household members through improved diets.

The symposium SEAVEG 2016: ‘Vegetable for improved nutrition and livelihoods in Southeast Asia’ comprises of oral papers, poster display and a trade exhibition. The organisers strongly encourage both types of presentation and will ensure that posters receive good visibility at the symposium
