Parliamentary action to tackle hunger and malnutrition is more necessary than ever, Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID) and FAO plan to bring parliamentarians together for the Second Global Parliamentary Summit against Hunger and Malnutrition, to take place in 2023. The forthcoming Summit aims to take stock of the issues, ideas and actions discussed during the virtual parliamentary dialogues and UN Food Systems Summit and to stimulate further parliamentary action to build on progress made since the 2018 Summit. It seeks to contribute towards a redoubling of efforts to end hunger and malnutrition in all its forms by 2030.

FAO and the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) are organizing a series of events to support the preparation of the forthcoming Summit and thereby ensure that it can facilitate valuable exchanges of experiences between parliamentarians and stimulate renewed parliamentary acts to tackle hunger and malnutrition.

These events aim to raise parliamentarians’ awareness about important issues relevant to efforts to tackle hunger and malnutrition, stimulate discussion, debate and knowledge exchange among parliamentarians, share FAO tools, capture and document relevant insights and experiences and inform the agenda for the forthcoming Summit.

Objectives of the events

  • Strengthen parliamentary capacities through specialized thematic sessions;
  • Enrich the political dialogue, and promote food security and nutrition legislation (FSN);
  • Offer a space for parliamentarians to put together priorities emerging from the Madrid Summit in 2018, the results of the Virtual Parliamentary Dialogues "Food Security and Nutrition in times of COVID-19" and the recommendations that arose during the UNFSS.
  • Compile key takeaways and main conclusions to position food security and nutrition high on the Second Global Parliamentary Summit agenda.
