The leading U.N. panel on food security is inviting public input on the proposed Global Strategic Framework for Food Security and Nutrition.
The framework is a document that aims to strengthen coordination and back global, regional and country-led actions to avert food crises, end hunger, and promote food security and nutrition worldwide.
The online consultation will ensure that the proposed Global Strategic Framework for Food Security and Nutrition is “based on the reality on the ground, drawing on best practices and lessons learned from local experience and the expert advice and opinions of different stakeholders,” said Noel de Luna, chairman of the Committee on World Food Security, in a July 28 press release.
The consultation will remain open through Oct. 15, 2011, and be conducted in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish. The presentation of the consultation’s results will take place at the 37th session of CFS in October in Rome, Italy.
