CSM Side Event @CFS 46 Re-think and Re-shaping Food Systems through Agroecology! CFS Policy Convergence process on Agroecology and Food Systems and Nutrition as the key opportunity to chart the transition to a truly sustainable future 15 October 2019 18.00 – 19.30 Iraq Room DOWNLOAD THE FLYER SUMMARY OF THE SIDE EVENT Panelists: Victor Suarez – Undersecretary of Agriculture, Mexico Iridiani Seibert – La Via Campesina, Brazil Molly D. Anderson – Professor, Middlebury College, USA Rodolfo Gonzalez Greco – Coordinadora Latinoamericana de Organizaciones del Campo (CLOC), Argentina Moderator: Joana Dias, Actuar/CPLP Portugal The side event aims to explore how best the CFS could seize a historical opportunity and strengthen the obvious synergy between the policy convergence process on Food Systems and Nutrition and on Agroecology and other innovations, both to be concluded by 2020. Indeed, the CFS Food Systems and Nutrition Guidelines are the first intergovernmental negotiation to establish a food system approach to the realisation on the right to food, one that recognise the multiplicity of public objectives  that the food systems serve. once the proper synergy with the Agroecology policy convergence process is established, the Guidelines may provide critical opportunities to re-affirm the multidimensional contribution of smallholder agriculture, promote agroecology and implement the UN Declaration of the Rights of Peasants and concretise the combined aspirations of the UN Decade of Family Farming and the UN Decade of Action on Nutrition, with a particular emphasis on women’s rights and youth perspectives.

CFS Meeting on Sustainable Forestry for Food Security and Nutrition

CFS Meeting on Sustainable Forestry for Food Security and Nutrition – 17 September 2019 CSM Key points to the event! Video of the Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food, Hilal Elver Presentation by Dr. Bambang Supriyanto, Director General of Social Forestry and Environmental Partnership, Indonesia Presentation by CGIAR Research Program on Forests, Trees and Agroforestry (FTA) The CFS Event that will take place on 17 September 2019 was strongly requested by the CSM when the CFS Policy Recommendations on Sustainable Forestry for Food Security and Nutrition were endorsed after a policy convergence process in October 2017. CSM Working Group felt that not enough time was dedicated, during the policy debates and negotiation process, to the impact on Right to Food and FSN of tree plantations. CSM highlighted that plantations should not be considered as Forests as their impact are far from being positive for  Forests communities. Read here CSM Statement of October 2017 and here CSM vision that informed CSM positions during the Policy convergence process. Two years after the endorsement of CFS Policy Recommendation this CFS event is finally taking place, even if reduced to a three-hour event, with no interpretation and without any concrete policy outcome of follow-up. Please find below CFS Concept Note and Agenda of the event. CFS Concept Note and Agenda BACKGROUND The Committee on World Food Security (CFS) at its 44thSession in 2017, endorsed a set of policy recommendations on Sustainable Forestry for Food Security and Nutrition which were elaborated around the main findings of a detailed report of the CFS High-Level Panel of Experts on Food Security and Nutrition (HLPE). These policy recommendations highlight the key role of forests and trees in ensuring food security and nutrition by contributing to dietary quality and diversity, serving as a safety net in periods of food scarcity, generating income for local people, and providing essential ecosystem services for agriculture. They also note that land degradation and global deforestation, caused mainly by agriculture, driven by increased demand, – adversely impact the environment and ecosystems that ground the livelihoods of indigenous peoples, local communities, and smallholders and agriculture as a whole. CFS stakeholders thus stressed that sustainable agriculture and food security and nutrition cannot be achieved at the expense of forests, and that actions should be taken to promote better coordination of land use policies and strengthen sustainable management of forests. Specific attention was paid to the need to
