| Dear Colleagues,
We would like to inform you that the online consultation « Strengthening urban and peri-urban food systems to achieve food security and nutrition in the context of urbanization and rural transformation – V0 draft of the HLPE-FSN report #19 » was extended until 26 January 2024.
This consultation is initiated and facilitated by the High Level Panel of Experts on Food Security and Nutrition (HLPE-FSN) of the Committee on World Food Security (CFS).
The comments are welcome in three languages: English, Españoland Français. We have already received inputs to the VO draft of the HLPE-FSN report from Argentina, Bangladesh, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Congo, Ethiopia, Hungary, Italy, Liberia, Morocco, Nigeria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Sudan, Switzerland, and UK.
|To respond to the CFS request, which was expressed during its 50th Plenary Session in October 2022, and as part of the report development process, the HLPE-FSN seeks inputs, suggestions and comments on the V0 draft of the report, which will be the 19th report of the HLPE-FSN.
The overall aim of the report is to explore the issues surrounding urbanization, rural transformation and their implications for food security and nutrition (FSN). The report was also tasked to develop action-oriented policy recommendations on urban and peri-urban food systems that will encourage coordinated policies for FSN across rural, urban and peri-urban areas, taking into account the specific needs of diverse rural and urban contexts and the linkages between them.
The results of this consultation will be used by the HLPE-FSN to further elaborate the report, which will then be submitted to peer review, before finalization and approval by the HLPE-FSN drafting team and the Steering Committee.
The report will be presented at CFS 52th plenary session in October 2024 and provide recommendations to the CFS workstream “Strengthening urban and peri-urban food systems to achieve food security and nutrition in the context of urbanization and rural transformation”.
