The annual session of the UN Committee on World Food Security began this Monday in Rome, Italy. There, several governments from different parts of the world will analyze policy recommendations for food security and nutrition. The session will end on Friday.
This year, the Committee on World Food Security (CFS), that responds to the UN General Assembly through the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and the FAO Conference (United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization) will discuss and agree on policy recommendations mainly on two issues: “sustainable agricultural development for food sovereignty and nutrition, including the role of livestock” and “the link of smallholder farmers with markets”.
The participation of the Civil Society at the Committee on World Food Security takes place through the Civil Society Mechanism (CSM), and its annual forum took place on Saturday and Sunday.
Friends of the Earth International is present with a delegation in Rome to participate at the CSM and push, together with social movements and organizations, in defense of agroecology in the framework of food sovereignty, small-scale food production, the role of local markets, among other issues.
