The side event aims to provide space to discuss the perspectives, expectations and concrete proposals by civil society, including small-scale food producers, indigenous peoples and the private sector with respect to the forthcoming Voluntary Guidelines on Food Systems and Nutrition. The event will also provide an interactive space for civil society and private sector to respond to and dialogue with each other’s proposals with the active engagement of the audience. The event will build on the first our regional consultation (Africa, Asia Pacific, Europe and Near East) and explore critical pathways for the upcoming  phase of negotiation.
