    17/10/2017 -

    The HLPE presented its 11th report in FAO HQ (Plenary Room) the 11th October 2017 @ 10.00, during CFS44 Plenary.

    This report is the result of the collective work of an international project team of scientists, with diverse expertise, led by Terry Sunderland, CIFOR principal scientist. It is the first time that CFS will consider and discuss the multiple contributions of forests and trees to food security and nutrition (FSN).


    As highlighted by Ms Semedo, FAO Deputy Director-General, during the launch in FAO on the 27th of June 2017if the world’s forests would be provided with the enabling conditions described in the 7 major recommendations of the report, the impact on FSN, would be considerable, especially for rural people in particular for women, youth and Indigenous Peoples”.

    Her Excellency Amira Gornass, CFS Chairperson, affirmed that this HLPE report, “using a common language”, enables CFS members and participants “to better understand the dynamics at play and the multiple links between forests, trees and food security and nutrition”. She said that “this very comprehensive analysis will help CFS to reach concrete results at the end of its policy convergence process and to agree on good, specific, short and concrete policy recommendations, under the leadership of the rapporteur, His Excellency Francois Pythoud, ambassador of Switzerland to FAO, WFP and IFAD”.
