Key lessons from MDG framework?
Lack of political commitment from governments and neglect of the gender dimension. Key challenge for the future of food and nutrition security? Sufficient political commitment from governments.
What works best? Social safety nets in the short term to ensure sufficient access to food and nutrition security. In the longer term there is no substitute to investment in smallholder agriculture, organisational learning through producer associations and better infrastructure for producing, storage and distribution'to boost output and reduce wastage.
Post 2015 targets? Who can have confidence in any target, promise or commitment from any government given the way the right to food has been consistently violated? Governments need to earn credibility on the food security front before they expect citizens to take their targets seriously.
