The Global Forum on Food Security and Nutrition “FSN Forum” is an online venue for
multi-stakeholder dialogue where policy decisions on food security and nutrition are collectively inspired, developed and linked with practice.
The FSN Forum is facilitated by the Agricultural Development Economics Division (ESA) in FAO.
Reliable information on forests is fundamental for improving the management of forest resources. This information can be used as an indicator of biodiversity, hydrology, and soil conservation and is also needed to fulfil the reporting requirements of many international agreements, such as the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.
In this context, the 21st Committee on Forestry requested FAO to prepare a set of voluntary guidelines on national forest monitoring.
By hosting online discussions on topics relevant to the region, the FSN Forum in Europe and Central Asia provides an opportunity for local stakeholders to voice their ideas and concerns on food security and nutrition and to actively take part in the policy dialogue.
