The latest report of the High Level Panel of Experts (HLPE) on Food Security and Nutrition has just been released.
Key messages from the Report are:
i. There is an urgent need for strengthening and consolidating conceptual thinking around FSN to prioritize the right to food, to widen our understanding of food security and to adopt a food systems analytical and policy framework.
ii. FSN outcomes in recent years show the extent to which the global community is falling short on Agenda 2030 targets, especially SDG 2, and that food systems face a range of challenges – and some opportunities – linked to major trends in the drivers of food system change.
iii. Policy approaches and actions for FSN, in light of the diverse challenges
facing food systems, will require critical policy shifts and support for enabling conditions that uphold all dimensions of food security.
