Global Forum on Food Security and Nutrition (FSN Forum)

Dear Participants,

Thank you for your active and fruitful contributions so far. It is clear that the generation of knowledge does not equate to ensuring that it is both useful and used. Social, economic, and political forces shape how evidence is valued and understood. Decision-making processes vary across individuals, communities, institutions, and governments, and are informed by different forms of knowledge and experience in different ways.

Your valuable insights are very important for informing work on the development of guidance for strengthening science-policy interfaces as well as science- and evidence-based policy processes for agrifood systems, helping to ensure that effective policy decisions are made based upon sufficient, relevant and credible science and evidence. In line with the guiding questions, we would appreciate your specific and focused inputs on informing policy for more efficient, inclusive, resilient and sustainable agrifood systems.

Best regards,
