Dear moderator,

Please find attached comments from World Animal Net on the V0 Draft of the report "Food security and nutrition: building a global narrative towards 2030."

In general, we are very pleased to see that through this report both sustainability and agency will be incorporated into the dimensions of FSN. We suggest several opportunities where the draft could strengthen its wording on needed transitions to achieve FSN, specifically the "transition to diets that contain a smaller proportion of calories from animal source foods" as suggested in the 2019 "Sustainable Healthy Diets: Guiding Principles" report by FAO and WHO. We also suggest that increasing awareness and demand for high animal welfare products should be considered as one of the trends outlined. Animal welfare standards have now been agreed by 183 countries through the World Organisation for Animal Health, and animal welfare was also covered prominently in "HLPE10: Sustainable agricultural development for food security and nutrition: what roles for livestock?"

Thank you for the opportunity to submit comments on the V0 Draft.
