Eco Fair Project joins EU side event COP27

Dr. Nguyen Bao Thoa, director of the Project “Promotion of supply and demand of Eco-Fair agri-food processing products in Vietnam” (Eco Fair project) (led by VIRI), will be speaker at the EU side event COP27 in Nov. 09, 2022 in Egypt: Recipes for change: how a sustainable food system can curb carbon emissions The event will show-case the role of circular economy approaches in curbing emissions along the food value-chain providing successful examples funded by the EU through its SWITCH regional programmes in Asia, Africa and the Mediterranean. Lastly, it will provide visibility to the implementation of the external dimension of the EU “From Farm to Fork Strategy” and the “EU Circular Economy Action Plan”. The event specific objectives are to highlight circular economy and other policy approaches that accelerate the transition of the agri-food value-chain to a low-carbon industry in partner countries; showcase examples of low-carbon agri-food enterprises (notably MSMEs) supported by the EU SWITCH regional programmes; and engage youth and the general public by promoting low-carbon nutrition and lifestyles. The Eco-Fair project is very active on these objectives and will share Vietnam experience on eco-fair promotion, which is expected to be a valuable contribution to this panel
