Forest dependent people are often located in remote and poor areas where livelihood opportunities are limited. Poverty, vulnerability, marginalization and social exclusion are among the major challenges they face. In these contexts, forests often serve as a safety net to cope with crises, which can lead to the unsustainable management of forest resources.
What is the role of social protection in promoting and protecting the livelihood of forest-dependent people?
Climate change directly affects food and nutrition security of millions of people, undermining current efforts to address undernutrition. It impacts people’s livelihoods and lifestyles through different pathways, hitting the poorest the hardest.
The objective of this consultation is to gain a better understanding of the impact of climate change and to identify possible measures to protect and/or improve nutrition.
Through this discussion we wish to promote dialogue around family farming issues. What can be done to make agriculture stimulating and profitable for young people and what strategies can promote equality for females working in the food system?
Protracted crises situations are those in which food insecurity and malnutrition are particularly severe, persistent and at scale.
This discussion seeks feedback on the zero draft of the Agenda for Action for Addressing Food Insecurity in Protracted Crises and will contribute to the preparation of the First Draft.
