FSN Forum policy dialogues: Contributing to food security and nutrition policy processes at country and regional level

FAO’s Global Forum on Food Security and Nutrition (FSN Forum) is organizing the two-day workshop “FSN Forum policy dialogues: contributing to food security and nutrition policy processes at country and regional level”, in Rome on 10-11 December 2015.

The workshop aims to strengthen the impact of online policy dialogues on the design, implementation and monitoring of food security and nutrition policies and processes. In addition, it will identify ways forward for a stronger engagement of decision-makers in multi-stakeholders policy debates on food security and nutrition and enhance linkages and synergies for FAO regional initiatives and projects via the FSN Forum’s global and regional platforms.

The workshop will include a mix of plenary and parallel (breakout) group sessions to allow for comparison and mutual exchange between the regional groups as well as for focused, in-depth reflection on the specificities of each regional network. Simultaneous English–French and English–Russian translation will be provided.

Presentations and discussions will be based on three pillars:

  • Food security and nutrition policies;
  • Engaging stakeholders and key decision-makers into FSN policy processes in specific geographic areas;
  • Building partnerships and expanding expert communities.

Participants will include selected active and potential FSN Forum members from all regions (especially from the platforms in West Africa and in Europe and Central Asia, but also members from Asia, Latin America and Near East) and subject matter specialists and partners from FAO HQ, regional and country offices. Many FAO officers will take part in specific sessions.

We look forward to an enjoyable and fruitful workshop!
