M’sia takes steps towards food security


KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia took another baby step towards food security and sustainability by becoming the first country to pilot the Integrated Sustainable Agricul­ture Programme (ISAP) of the United Nations Global Compact, and by setting up a secretariat to recognise Malaysian farmers through a global registry.

Under ISAP, Malaysian farmers or SMEs who registered will be assigned a unique Blue Number, a recognition for contributing to food security either within Malaysia or regionally if they export their produce.
