Food systems and Nutrition guidelines: How can the CFS make a difference?

Perspectives and expectations of small-scale food producers, civil society and Indigenous Peoples. 

(CSM Working Group on Nutrition)

Download the flyer HERE

The side event aims to present and discuss the perspectives and expectations of small-scale food producers, civil society organizations and Indigenous Peoples with respect to the forthcoming Voluntary Guidelines on Food Systems and Nutrition. In particular, the side event will explore how the CFS could really make the difference in proposing concrete policy pathways for normative and fiscal interventions that can realign food systems, in all their components, with the urgency to fulfil the right to adequate food and nutrition while also ensuring healthy and sustainable diets. While taking a holistic approach to nutrition – one that bridges the food, health, ecology and identity angles, the side event will advance concrete propositions on the key issues the CFS would need to tackle for the guidelines to be an effective policy instrument.
