Every year, the International Conference on Agribusiness Economics and Management (ICAEM) brings together scholars working in the field of agribusiness from various parts of the world.
Organized by the University of the Philippines Mindanao, in partnership with the UP School of Management, the conference provides a venue for scholars to present researches that deal with economic or management issues affecting the entirety or specific nodes within the agri-food chains, specifically those within the crops, fisheries, and livestock and poultry subsectors.
Resilience is the ability to cope with change. Specifically, this means the ability to withstand, manage, or mitigate environmental, economic, and socio-political challenges. For industries, resilience is the key to surviving and prospering in an ever-changing environmental and economic context. This is especially true for agribusiness industries, which are affected by phenomena such as climate change, disease spread in agriculture, and fluctuations in the world market.
This year’s conference, with the theme “Building Resilience: Agribusiness in Times of Flux,” will explore different ways to address the various gaps that will allow agribusiness industries and the sector to compete in the market.
This conference is financially supported by the UP Office of International Linkages and endorsed by the Commission on Higher Education, Philippines.
