APEC Scientific Seminar-Workshop on Food Safety Risk-Benefit Analysis

Date: November 2011
Location: Manila, Philippines

The Philippines held an APEC workshop on Food Safety Risk-Benefit Analysis on November 22-24, 2011 in Manila. The project introduced the concept of Food Safety Risk-Benefit Analysis in the APEC region and explored its possibility in complementing the traditional Food Safety Risk Analysis tools. Specifically, the Seminar aimed to: (a) identify available scientific approaches and methods needed for conducting risk-benefit analysis of foods; (b) to explore opportunities and limitations to quantitatively/qualitatively compare risks and benefits; and (c) to define further research or capacity needs of each member economy in the region.
