Project Summary

With a view to continuing APEC effort on enhancing green awareness and skills for MSMES through APEC Strategy for Green, Sustainable and Innovative MSMEs adopted in 2017, Thailand proposes Phase II of the project on Enhancing Green MSMEs’ Competitiveness for a Sustainable and Inclusive Asia-Pacific, focusing on food sector waste reduction in food supply chain. The expected outcome is a package of well-balanced and practical solution for MSMEs in fostering reduction of food loss and non-degradable waste from food packaging, while encouraging consumption of eco-friendly alternatives and being financially incentivized. 

Key project activities include:

- Organize an APEC Forum on enhancing MSMEs’ competitiveness and a back-to-back workshop in Thailand in July 2020 to discuss policy recommendations on promoting green practice in the food supply chain from post-harvesting to processing, while tackle the obstacles that discourage MSMEs’ participation in the GVC.

- Develop an APEC Handbook comprising best practices on food sector's waste reduction in food supply chain.
