I have been meaning to post my analysis of the FAO’s new strategies for partnership with civil society organizations and for partnerships with the private sector.
I have not had time to write it up but I think it is important to share the document. I am particularly interested in the definitions forwarded in the Strategy for Partnership with Civil Society Organizations (spoiler alert: the Civil Society Mechanism is defined as a social movement!?!)
I was also intrigued to find out that the IPC was consulting on this issue and received 50 submissions. Unfortunately, none of them seem to be available online and there is no record of consultation on the IPC website. I’ll give it a better look when I get more time.
In the mean time, here are the strategies for your reading pleasure.
Also, I think that its worth recalling the Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food’s FAO mission while reading these: https://foodgovernance.com/2013/03/04/special-rapporteur-on-the-right-to-food-takes-stock-of-the-fao/
