Convened by Committee on World Food Security
Hunger and malnutrition in all its forms remain a challenge globally. The Committee on World Food Security (CFS) formally adopted “Voluntary Guidelines on Food Systems and Nutrition” (VGFSyN), a process informed by the scientific evidence of the CFS High-Level Panel of Experts, these Guidelines represent a concrete tool in the hands of governments, UN agencies, civil society, private sector, financial institutions and other development actors to provide guidance on policies and intervention.
The webinar seeks to raise awareness about the CFS Voluntary Guidelines on Food Systems and Nutrition, its substantive content with particular attention to the health dimension and priority areas and actions to advance public health in the context of sustainable food systems. The discussion will also focus on how these Guidelines could represent a useful tool in the hands of policymakers and development partners, will explore how the Guidelines can be used at regional, country, and local levels, and will touch upon the role of different stakeholders and coordination mechanisms in promoting the uptake of the Guidelines on the ground.
