HLPE - High Level Panel of Experts on Food Security and Nutrition

The High Level Panel of Experts on Food Security and Nutrition (HLPE) was established in 2010 as the science-policy interface of the UN Committee on World Food Security (CFS).  The HLPE aims to improve the robustness of policy making by providing independent, evidence-based analysis and advice at the request of CFS.

This report is the result of the collective work of an international project team of scientists, with diverse expertise, led by Dr Moraka Makhura, professor at the University of Pretoria.

During this launch, participants thanked the HLPE for this excellent and informative report providing an overall picture of MSPs, their diversity, their potential and challenges. They recognized the specific challenges the HLPE faced for the elaboration of this report. They stressed that is report, along with the questionnaire submitted during the open consultation, clarifies the concepts and terminology, provide a logic framework to better understand the contribution of MSPs to FSN and sustainable development, and can provide useful guidance when setting-up new MSPs.

The logic framework suggested in the report can also be used by academia and other stakeholders to set-up a strengthened learning process on MSPs, and their contribution to FSN and sustainable development, at different scales (from national to global).

In his opening speech, the CFS Chair undelined the importance of the first recommendation proposed in our report: a call to action for creating policy frameworks that facilitate and make more effective multi-stakeholder partnership contributions for the realization of the right to food

In its concluding remarks, the CFS Chair stressed that this report provides food for thought for the CFS itself as the 2030 deadline is approaching.
