This webinar presents the CFS draft Voluntary Guidelines on Food Systems and Nutrition. The objective of the Guidelines is to promote equitable, resilient and environmentally sustainable food systems that contribute to and enable healthy diets, in line with the goals of the 2030 Agenda.

The session will discuss the nature, objectives, and content of the Guidelines and how this can tie into the work of the gFSC and partners’ work at regional and national levels. The Guidelines adopt a “food systems lens” to promote policy coherence and act as a reference for countries to accelerate efforts to eradicate all forms of malnutrition

The webinar is aimed at:

  • Familiarizing participants with the CFS and showcasing examples of its processes and products;
  • Introducing the current version of the Guidelines, the core messages and overarching goals;
  • Stimulating a discussion on the potential role of the Guidelines in steering decision-makers and stakeholders when drafting policies, laws, regulatory frameworks, strategies and programmes at local, country, and regional levels;
  • Reflecting on potential areas of collaboration between the CFS and the gFSC, with particular attention to the Guidelines’ application in support of the gFSC’s emergency coordination, strategic programming and monitoring of operations.

Speakers:

  • Bruno Minjauw, Global Coordinator, gFSC
  • Christopher Hegadorn, CFS Secretary
  • Jessica Fanzo, Professor of Global Food & Agricultural Policy and Ethics, John Hopkins University
  • Stineke Oenema, Coordinator, UN Standing Committee on Nutrition
