The MDG 's that have most impact on the topic of this discussion are Education for all, including higher education for women and girls, gender equality and maternal health. These are the core set that I believe will involve more women in decisionmaking about land ownership, water access and infrastructure- no area left dry.
The other key prerequisite for successfully addressing hunger, food and nutrition security is peace. The longer we continue to lack the political will to turn guns and armaments into tools and diplomatic work for peaceful co existence we will not achieve success. Self development and constraint within the environmental resources we have in the area of the globe we reside in is a reality. Sustainable management of our soils and habitats are essential.
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)
