Координационный комитет Кодекса по Латинской Америке и странам Карибского бассейна (CCLAC), региональный координатор – Эквадор

В 1976 году в Риме Координационный комитет по Латинской Америке, основанный двумя годами ранее по итогам 10-й сессии Комиссии “Кодекс Алиментариус”, провел первое заседание с участием восьми стран региона. Однако уже на третьей сессии этого Комитета было выдвинуто предложение изменить его название на более точно отражающий состав стран-членов в регионе текущий вариант: Координационный комитет по Латинской Америке и странам Карибского бассейна. Предложенные изменения были утверждены Исполнительным комитетом, выступавшим от имени Комиссии, на 31-й сессии в 1984 году.

Регион Латинской Америки и стран Карибского бассейна занимает важное место в глобальных процессах производства и торговли пищевыми продуктами. В нем производится достаточно продовольствия как для собственного потребления, так и на экспорт, при этом его водных и земельных ресурсов достаточно для дальнейшего роста объемов производства.

Помимо огромных запасов природных богатств в регионе наблюдается расцвет сельскохозяйственной отрасли и особенно важного для местных жителей семейного фермерского хозяйства. Необходимо привлекать внимание к проблеме и укреплять меры безопасности пищевых продуктов на уровне всех регионов, чтобы гарантировать здоровье потребителей и справедливые и равные условия торговли.

Штаб-квартирой регионального координатора, которым выбран Эквадор, стало Агентство по фитосанитарному регулированию и контролю за здоровьем животных (AGROCALIDAD) при Министерстве сельского хозяйства и животноводства. Поставленные координатором цели включают повышение сплоченности стран в регионе и организацию взаимопомощи для преодоления региональных проблем и поиска решений общих задач.

Кроме того, координатор надеется укрепить сотрудничество между странами и расширить участие развивающихся стран в работе Комиссии и ее вспомогательных органов.
