Greetings from Sarawak TROPI. Another very exciting event for 2024. Please come and join us at the symposium, “Unlocking the Potential of Sago Palm: Towards Sustainable Food Systems and Environmental Restoration,” an event dedicated to advancing our knowledge of the significant nutritional and environmental benefits of the sago palm. This symposium is pivotal for anyone interested in sustainable agriculture, food security, and environmental conservation. We aim to elevate the global status of sago palm as a vital, sustainable food source that also plays a critical role in restoring and rehabilitating tropical peatlands.

Our objectives include raising global awareness about sago palm’s benefits, aligning its cultivation with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, and fostering international research and innovation. We will also focus on strengthening policy support and investment for its cultivation and use, and enhancing knowledge exchange and capacity building across various sectors. This gathering is a unique opportunity to contribute to a global campaign that not only aims to end hunger but also to promote sustainable agriculture practices and take action on climate change.

Whether you are a researcher, policymaker, entrepreneur, or advocate for sustainable development, your participation is crucial. Join us to share insights, forge collaborations, and drive forward the global recognition and utilization of sago palm. Together, we can create a food-secure world that prioritizes both people and the planet.
