7 December 2023

The Director General of Fisheries Malaysia, along with other board members, attended the Worldfish 93rd Board of Trustees Meeting held on December 7, 2023, in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The purpose of this meeting was to discuss and approve Worldfish’s long-term organizational strategy, annual work and budget plan, as well as governance matters.

In addition, the Board of Trustees also visited the Integrated Desert Farming Field. This program enables CGIAR to transform deserts, under the right conditions, into highly productive and diverse food systems. These systems have the power to increase smallholder farmer incomes, reduce food and feed imports, all while achieving an 80% reduction in energy consumption and a similar reduction in freshwater usage.

As the host country to Worldfish’s headquarters in Penang, Malaysia looks forward to working closely with Worldfish to achieve our common goals towards food security for the future.
