Food Security and Nutrition: Building a global narrative towards 2030 - HLPE e-consultation on the Report’s scope
During its 45th Plenary Session the UN Committee on World Food Security (CFS) requested its High Level Panel of Experts on Food Security and Nutrition (HLPE) to produce a short report entitled “Food Security and Nutrition: Building a global narrative towards 2030” to be presented by the first semester 2020. To implement this CFS request, the HLPE is launching an open e-consultation to seek views and comments on the following scope and building blocks of the report.
What story can Small Island Developing States (SIDS) tell on addressing the relationship between poverty and climate change?
The Small Island Developing States (SIDS) share unique and particular vulnerabilities, resulting in a complex set of environmental, food security and nutrition challenges. Learning from SIDS on how they cope with climate change related impacts in these respects, could be instrumental to not only other Small States but also to the rest of the world. The results gathered here will feed into an ongoing work to support countries to address the interrelation between poverty and climate change in coastal areas, coastal communities and SIDS.
With this online discussion, we would like to invite you to reflect on the nexus between extreme poverty and food insecurity.
While there is little doubt that hunger and poverty are closely linked, policies and interventions addressing hunger and extreme poverty are often sector-specific and look at either of the two problems.
