The CFS, in its 40th session, requested the HLPE to prepare a report on Water and Food Security for its 42nd session in 2015. As part of its report elaboration process, the HLPE is launching an e-consultation to seek views, public and expert feedback and comments, on the proposed scope and building blocks of the report.
This strategy and work plan is based on the outcomes of the workshop held in November 2013 with the participation of FSN Forum members and representatives of organisations working on food security and nutrition in the region.
The document includes background on the FSN Forum in West Africa, the vision and strategic objectives and the areas of work identified for 2014.
In November 2012, the UN Committee on World Food Security (CFS) requested the High Level Panel of Experts on Food Security and Nutrition (HLPE) to conduct a study on Food Losses and Waste in the Context of Sustainable Food Systems.
