“Inclusive Growth and Food Security”, was jointly organized by the AgriCord and Oxfam. The forum assessed the need for financial institutions such as ADB to design and monitor projects in terms of their impact at the household and individual levels. This is based on the premise that food security is a prerequisite for reducing inequality and promoting inclusive growth, sustainable development, and political stability. ADB Independent Evaluation Department Director General Vinod Thomas joined the panel along with Noel Monteyne of AgriCord, Simpei Murakami of Asian Farmers’ Association for Sustainable Rural Development, and Jessica Rosien of Oxfam.
