Dear Right to Food Supporters,
We are happy to announce the launching of the Right to Food Forum.
Hosted by FAO through the Global Forum on Food Security and Nutrition (FSN Forum), the Right to Food Forum is a new online platform aiming at facilitating open discussions on key issues related to the right to food.
The theme of the first discussion is "Spaces for dialogue on food security at the municipal level". Your contribution to the debate is most welcome.
To take part, register here and post your comments online. If you would like to send us your comments via email or suggest a topic for discussion, you can also contact us by email.
The Right to Food Forum is part of the activities conducted by the FAO Right to Food Team on the occasion of the 10 years review of progress made in implementing the “Voluntary Guidelines to Support the Progressive Realization of the Right to Adequate Food in the Context of National Food Security” , adopted unanimously by the FAO Council in 2004.
The 41st session of the CFS in October will represent a privileged platform to discuss the different dimensions of the implementation of the Guidelines (global, regional and national), look back at the progress made over the last ten years and plan the way forward. To mark this important milestone, FAO is leading a series of activities including 7 Thematic Studies on important issues guided by the content of the Right to Food Guidelines; a Synthesis Report capturing the main findings of the Studies for the CFS; and a Technical Dialogue on 3rd of July aiming at determining how to better focus the background provided by FAO for the multi-stakeholder retrospective review, in order to give a comprehensive but concise overview of the 10 years achievements, the challenges and the key lessons learned.
