Implementation of the Reform of Global Governance of Food Security
The goal of this round table will be to take stock of ongoing initiatives to reform the system of global governance in support of country-led food security strategies that have been launched over the last two years and identify priority areas for action. The round table will attempt to respond to the following questions:
- How to maximize synergies among the different initiatives?
- How to ensure that the emerging reformed system of governance is flexible and able to respond to changing conditions and increased volatility?
- How to strengthen partnerships, including with civil society and the private sector, at the global, regional and national levels?
- How to support implementation of ongoing institutional reforms in FAO and CGIAR?
- What are the major initiatives contributing to the reform of the global food security governance?
- What globally coordinated solutions can be identified to challenges posed by the globalization of food systems as countries integrate more and more into the world economy?
- How can we ensure that the emerging reformed system of governance is flexible and able to respond to changing conditions and increased volatility?
- How can we ensure greater coherence in the global governance of food security to enable all stakeholders – governments, relevant national and international institutions and organizations, civil society groups (producers, consumer Non-governmental organizations) and other key players in the global food system – to contribute more effectively towards eliminating chronic hunger and food insecurity, and prevent future food security crises from occurring?
