The meeting report for APEC to respond to emergency food needs in natural disasters


The AFERM is designed to be a cost-effective and risk-sharing buffer in providing emergency food relief from earmarked reserves stemmed from voluntary donations of its members. It would cooperate with the experienced humanitarian NGOs to deliver the emergency food aids and complement the existing regional food aid/reserve programs through collective actions. Given the encouraging economic results of the AFERM in this report and numerous strengths of the AFERM, Chinese Taipei continues to promote the AFERM proposal to safeguard the food security in the APEC region.
