Extract from the MYPoW 2016-2017 on Sustainable forestry for food security and nutrition – 2017

46. CFS 41, in October 2014, requested the HLPE, to undertake a study on “Sustainable Forestry for Food Security and Nutrition” to be presented to the Plenary in 2017. This HLPE report will aim at an evidence-based, comprehensive analysis of the relations between forestry and food security and nutrition. It will describe the various contributions of forests and forestry, including plantations and agroforestry, to improved food security and better nutrition, given the specificities of the timescales of forestry-related activities. The analysis will review challenges and opportunities relevant to forests’ and forestry’s contribution to food security and nutrition of people living in the forests, at the forests’ margins, and outside forests, from local to global levels. To do so, the report will address relevant issues of land-use and relations between forests and agriculture. It will consider threats to and opportunities for the social, economic and environmental functions of forests and forestry, including biodiversity, the role of forests in the climate system and the impacts of climate change. The report will look at instruments, institutions, and governance, with a view to recommending appropriate actions by policy makers and stakeholders.
