REGISTER NOW to the Annual Civil Society Forum, 5 – 6 October 2013!
Join hundreds of civil society actors in preparation for the 40th Session of the Committee on World Food Security and register to the CSM Forum by September 20th!
The Forum is a space where CSOs can finalise the positions which they have been developing through the CSM working groups during the intersessional process. It is open to all interested civil society participants working in the field of food security and nutrition, although emphasis is put on the broad and inclusive participation of social movement representatives, to ensure that they are able to effectively influence the messaging and eventually, the outcomes of the CFS. The CSM Forum also provides the space for Coordination Committee members to report back to the broader membership of the CSM.
What’s on the table for discussion?
All policy issues to be discussed during the CFS plenary session!
Two policy roundtables: (1) Biofuels and Food Security and (2) Investing in Smallholder Agriculture and other relevant food security issues for the CFS, including an update on the process for developing principles for responsible agricultural investment (rai), addressing food security in protracted crises, global and regional linkages with the CFS and monitoring CFS decisions.
Before participating, please read carefully these PRACTICAL GUIDELINES for civil society participation in the Civil Society Forum and 40th Session of the Committee on World Food Security.
