Greetings from Guyana!
On Theme 3
Most countries have varying economic, social and political climate which pose severe challenges towards achieving the MDG’s within the bounded time frame.In addition, one of the main problems with the initiative was that it failed to address the unique individuality of each country as such, while some countries were on the fast track of achieving the goals, others were stagnated.
Given this problem, it would be essential that policies be designed in a specific framework taking into account each country’s economic, social and political climate. In addition, time-bounds should be greater for developing countries who lack sufficient capital needed to undertake investment in the necessary areas so as to achieve the goals.
This thematic discussion was led by FAO and WFP in collaboration with “The World We Want”.
The consultation was facilitated by the Global Forum on Food Security and Nutrition (FSN Forum)
