Virtual meeting of the CFS Advisory Group and Bureau

17 April 2020 @ 9:30 - 12:30 CET


17 April 2020. Virtual meeting of the CFS Advisory Group and Bureau 

On April 17th morning the CFS Advisory Group and Bureau will hold a regular meeting. The main part of the discussion will be devoted to the agenda item related to the CFS workplan adjustments in light of the crisis. CSM has been arguing to change the rhythm of the ongoing policy processes to ensure inclusiveness, transparency and meaningful participation of the constituencies most affected and most contributing to food security and nutrition to the ongoing policy processes. Other agenda items foreseen are: a) the theme for the CFS 47th Plenary Session; b) the proposal for a final drafting of the report for CFS 47; c) a budget update; d) and a CFS workstream and activities update. The meeting will also include a brief exchange moment on the use and application of the VGGT and RAI, and the work done by FAO and IFAD on fostering the use and application of this policy outcomes. This CFS Chair initiative was welcomed by the CSM and might become a periodic moment of exchange during CFS Advisory and Bureau meetings. CSM also noticed that in the Bureau meeting agenda that will take place on the 17thafternoon, Bureau members are called to take a decision on the composition of the Advisory Group. The CSM Youth Working Group therefore will request the CFS Chair to address this item under Any Other Business in the Advisory Group and Bureau meeting.
