I’d like to thank all of you for sending your input on not only the background document for the CFS Forum on Urbanization, Rural Transformation and Implications for Food Security and Nutrition, but also your thoughts on this topic more broadly. As many of you highlighted, this is a broad framing of an issue which is very context specific in terms of the resulting implications and dynamics for achieving food security and nutrition.
Your contributions will help us to revise the background document and also to plan for the Forum at CFS43 where these issues will be discussed, together with the role of CFS going forward on this work. The revised version of the background document will be available in all languages on the official documents page of CFS43 in early September. Thank you again for taking the time to share your knowledge and experience on this important issue.
Ms. Deborah Fulton
