second day of the conference. It should also introduce what is expected as an output
from the thematic break-out sessions, in particular with regard to recommendations for
topics or instruments for cooperation.

9:00 – 12:30 Session 4:

Climate Change mitigation and adaptation – Parallel Thematic Sessions (Food,


Health, Energy/Biofuels)

9:00 – 12:30 I. Thematic break-out session on food security and food safety
Focus of the session
A growing demand for safer, healthier, higher quality food coupled with a decrease in
land and water resources available for production and major investments in renewable
bio-resources and agricultural biofuels address new and emerging research opportunities
that address social, environmental and economic challenges.
Agro-ecosystems, and with them, food security also include coping with major
interlinked trends affecting the whole bio-economy: climate change and mitigation of its
effects. Agriculture is indeed greatly exposed to climate change since they directly
depend on climatic conditions. Consequences of extreme climatic events are already
visible and appalling: increased variations in crop yields leading to uninsured economic
losses for the agricultural sector, shortage of water resources, expansion of areas of
salinization, re-ermegence of parasitic and zoonotic diseases and new food and feed
contamination pathways…
Besides, the food crisis of 2002-2008 demonstrates the fragile nature of feeding the
world’s human population : increasing global demand for food, animal feed and biofuel
coupled with disruption in agricultural supplied caused by poor weather, crop diseases
ad export restriction in key countries have created chaos in international markets adding
to market speculations. Increased incidences of extreme climate events could
emphasize price volubility and changes in trade flow in the near future
The agricultural sector of tropical and sub-tropical countries in South East Asia countries
is particularly fragile and vulnerable to climate change. Critical role that agriculture can
play in fighting poverty and hunger, and ensuring food safety could be compromised.
This threat will be amplified by increasing competition between food and bioenergy
production objectives if no innovative and coherent solutions are found.
Any major food crises in these regions will directly impact Europe. Current trends
towards relative social and political stability in South East Asia, representing joint
economic opportunities for Europe, could be reversed by negative impacts of climate
change on agriculture. Therefore, the consequences of climate change on food security
and safety and emergence of mitigation scenarios must be addressed at a global level.
For Europe, it means that agricultural research for food security and safety must be
coordinated on close interaction with South-East Asia.
Through a range of key note address given by internationally renowned scientists from
both Europe and Asia countries, the session will address S&T gaps and identify needs and
topics of research of mutual interest for future bi-regional collaboration.

9:00 – 12:30 II. Thematic break-out session on Health


The last decade has seen the emergence and global spread of several infectious
diseases, which place substantial social and economic burdens on both individuals and
their societies. The spread and distribution of emerging epidemics will only be
exacerbated by the impacts of climate change. Emerging epidemics pose a major threat
to global public health and international joint research is needed to address this
challenge.
The health thematic session aims to broaden researchers understanding of opportunities
within FP7 and further identify key areas of interest for collaboration between
researchers in the EU and SEA. The session will also identify the imminent threat
created by climate change and resultant shifting distribution of infectious diseases.
Opportunities and Experience in FP7 Health
Invited speakers: Health NCP(s) from Europe, policymakers and researchers able to
discuss research priorities especially in the context of 'climate change and infectious
diseases'
Audience: SEA and EU policymakers and researchers
Content
1. Information session on FP7:
a) What is FP7, who can apply, health with the co-operation programme, how
to draft a successful proposal
b) Opportunities for funding and collaboration, EC strategy for healthcare,
future calls, priority areas for the SEA region etc.
2. Importance of the impacts of climate change on infectious diseases - policy and
policymaking priorities
3. Interactive Q&A session

Objectives - purpose & aim of session


1. Increase awareness of FP7 within SEA
2. Increase awareness of FP7 opportunities within area of health including funding
opportunities and opportunities for collaboration
3. Discuss potential future calls focused on SEA region and bi-regional priority areas for
future health research, especially given the threat posed by climate change
4. Identify a niche area for SEA within FP7 (e.g. resistance to antimalarial drugs)
5. Discuss and create a policy dialogue on the impacts of climate change on
infectious diseases
6. Maximise the ..??
7. Promote more bi-regional activities in health / infectious diseases

9:00 – 12:30 III. Thematic break-out session on Biofuels


There is growing scientific, social and political consensus that man made green house
gas (GHG) emissions are a significant contributing factor to global climate change.
Transport now accounts for over 20% of global GHG emissions and is also the main driver
behind the increasing global demand for fossil fuels.
The last few years has seen a surge in interest in the development of biofuel systems for
their potential to curb GHG emissions and to improve energy security through reduced
dependence on fossil fuels. However, there has also been mounting concern that
current biofuels development may in fact contribute to higher food prices due to their
competition with food crops, and that their production may in lead to energy price
volatility. There are related concerns that recent government incentives for biofuels
production may be inadvertently be leading to deforestation, and an overall loss of
biodiversity.
Since the potential benefits of biofuels are global, international collaboration on
research and development (R&D) and biofuels policy development is essential. This
thematic session will discuss how EU-SEA cooperation can help ensure that continued
biofuel development contributes to climate change mitigation, food and energy security,
poverty reduction and sustainable rural livelihoods

Make it Work
Focus of the session
In this final session we concentrate on two parallel issues: what actions need to be
taken and how the SEA-EU-NET can help pushing them forward. On the one hand we will
present some success stories that helped enhancing co-operation between the two
regions and on the other hand we will discuss actions that need to be tackled in the
future. This should serve as an input for a bi-regional Action Plan for enhanced S&T
cooperation. In this final part concrete suggestions and comments from the audience,
especially from our Steering Committee members are very much appreciated.
Objectives:
 Presentation of good practice of bi-regional cooperation schemes;
 Discussion of future actions, that need to be developed;
 Recommendations towards the project for future actions.
