Global Food Safety Partnership Second Annual Conference

Date: December 9-13, 2013
Location: Singapore

The World Bank will hold the second annual conference of the Global Food Safety Partnership (GFSP) conference in Singapore from December 9-13. Building off of the APEC FSCF and PTIN public private partnership capacity building model, the Word Bank Group administered Global Food Safety Partnership seeks to create a multi-stakeholder platform that can address food safety capacity building The establishment of the GFSP was the result of considerable action over the last ecade, including the good work initiated under the APEC Food Safety Cooperation Forum. In early 2012, Waters Corporation, Mars Incorporated, and USAID became the founding contributors in this unique food safety capacity building partnership. Since then, several national governments, private sector, academic and non-government organizations have demonstrated strong support for the GFSP and have become partners to the GFSP through financial or in-kind contributions. The Netherlands provided a crucial initial contribution that enabled activation of a new GFSP multi-donor trust fund managed by the World Bank. Recently, additional financial contributions have been provided by the governments of Canada, Denmark, and the United States to support GFSP implementation. Seed funding for the GFSP has also been provided from within the World Bank.

The purpose of the 2nd Annual Conference is to take stock of the first year of activity, overview plans for the coming year, and exchange views on priorities for the Partnership. The goal fo the GFSP is to work together on a more efficient model of capacity building for a better food safety global network.
