Grow Asia is a multi-stakeholder platform established in 2015 by the World Economic Forum and the ASEAN Secretariat to cultivate more inclusive, resilient and sustainable food systems in Southeast Asia.
We do this by brokering commercial and non-profit partnerships between the 600+ global and regional public, private, civil society, academic and farmer organizations that make up the Grow Asia Network, creating an ecosystem that supports knowledge sharing, collaboration, innovation and policy change.
Grow Asia comprises:
The regional Grow Asia Secretariat in Singapore; 6 Country Partnerships, each supported by an in-country team; and 44 Working Groups, organized around specific cross-cutting issues (e.g., agrifinance) or value chains (e.g., coffee).
In 2020, Grow Asia was accredited as an Entity Associated with ASEAN due to the important role we play in the region, particularly in facilitating multi-stakeholder partnerships for sustainable agriculture development.
We have recently been alerted that firms purporting to be a part of Grow Asia have been contacting our stakeholders making false investment offers. We do not endorse any investment offer and any claim that Grow Asia has endorsed an investment is false and likely to be part of a fraudulent scheme. We urge and advise you to not pursue it.
