09 Sep Conference Highlights: 8th SDSWR (Positioning Agribusiness and Forestry for the Future: Turning Risk into Opportunity)
While there were many negatives from the COVID-19 pandemic, there has also been a positive development in the growing recognition that the global community must urgently and effectively address the climate crisis. This was the call made by speakers at the Singapore Dialogue on Sustainable World Resources (SDSWR), held in May 2021.
The SDSWR is the SIIA’s sustainability flagship event. Held annually since 2014, the SDSWR facilitates dialogues between governments, the private sector, experts and NGOs, to help drive the transition of ASEAN towards sustainability. Past keynote speakers have included ministers from Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore. Panel discussions have included CEOs of major multinational corporations, financial institutions, investors, and leading global experts.
