The UPLB Interdisciplinary Center on Food Security is one of the 18 virtual centers of the UPLB. ISCFS seeks to promote food and nutrition security through research, instruction and extension. It aims to generate knowledge and technology through multi-disciplinary approach in research, creating a platform for discussion and consultation, mainstreaming food security in curricular programs, and formulating policies and information to promote food and nutrition security through broad based participation of stakeholders.

As an initial activity, the UPLB-ISCFS will conduct a six (6) round-table discussions (RTDs) to provide a venue for exchange of knowledge, identify gaps, and ways forward for a more integrative approach to food and nutrition security.

The first of the RTDs is on the topic about “Methodologies for Assessing Food and Nutrition Security” which will be held on August 18, 2014, 1:00PM at the Food and Nutrition Research Institute (FNRI), Department of Science and Technology (DOST) Compound, Taguig City.
