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.
The aim of this discussion is to share perspectives on actual and potential links between street food vending and urban and periurban agriculture and horticulture, analyzing if and in which way such links may represent the basis for possible strategies to enhance food security in urban areas.
Through this discussion we wish to promote dialogue around family farming issues. What can be done to make agriculture stimulating and profitable for young people and what strategies can promote equality for females working in the food system?
The degree to which the Food Security and Nutrition information produced is actually used by decision makers, and influences policy making, remains unclear. Through this discussion we would like to explore the factors that contribute to our evidence and knowledge actually being used in policy making processes.
To follow up on two rounds of online discussions on the draft Declaration of the Second International Conference on Nutrition (ICN2) held earlier this year, we now invite you to share your comments and inputs on the zero draft of the Framework for Action (FFA). This open consultation gives you an opportunity to contribute to the Conference and to its outcome.
10 years ago FAO member states produced and adopted The Right to Food Guidelines, which provide practical guidance on how the human right to adequate food can be realized. The goal of this online discussion is to learn from the first ten years of using the Right to Food Guidelines to get better for the future.
