The High Level Panel of Experts for Food Security and Nutrition (HLPE) seeks input on the V0 draft of its report on smallholder investment in agriculture.
This study focuses on the policy options for addressing constraints to investments, taking into consideration the work done on this topic by IFAD, and by FAO in the context of COAG, and the work of other key partners. It includes a comparative assessment of strategies for linking smallholders to food value chains as well as an assessment of the impacts on smallholders of different forms of partnership models.
The HLPE of the CFS has also received the mandate to undertake analysis and formulate policy recommendations on land tenure and international investments in agriculture and seeks you feedback on the scope of the analysis. Have important elements been omitted? Should any of the elements be left out?
The thirty-sixth session of Committee on World Food Security asked the newly created High Level Panel of Experts to undertake a study on aligning international agricultural investment with food security concerns. We invite you to comment on the Version 0 draft of the document.

What can be done about it? What are examples of policies and tools that promote women's land rights?
