HLPE e-consultation on the zero draft of the report on Multistakeholder partnerships

HLPE Report on: Multistakeholder Partnerships to Finance and Improve Food Security and Nutrition in the Framework of the 2030 Agenda From 16 January to 19 February 2018 During its 43rd Plenary Session (17-21 October 2016), the CFS requested the HLPE to produce a report on “Multistakeholder Partnerships to Finance and Improve Food Security and Nutrition in the Framework of the 2030 Agenda” to be presented at CFS45 Plenary session in October 2018. As part of its report elaboration process, the HLPE is now launching an e-consultation to seek inputs, suggestions, and comments on the present V0 Draft. This open e-consultation will be used by the HLPE to further elaborate the report, which will then be submitted to external expert review, before finalization and approval by the HLPE Steering Committee.  Please download the Draft V0 of the Report here: http://www.fao.org/fileadmin/user_upload/hlpe/hlpe_documents/PT_MultiStakeholders/Docs/HLPE-Multi-Stakeholder-Partnerships-for-FSN_Draft-V0-16_January_2018.pdf   HLPE V0 drafts are deliberately presented early enough in the process – as a work-in-progress, with their range of imperfections – to allow sufficient time to give proper consideration to the feedback received so that it can play a really useful role in the elaboration of the report. It is a key part of the scientific dialogue between the HLPE Project Team and Steering Committee, and the rest of the knowledge community. In order to enrich and illustrate the report with a variety of examples, participants are invited to submit concrete, practical, well-documented and significant case-studies of existing MSPs, as defined in the V0 Draft, through the use of the dedicated Questionnaire provided both as an annex to the V0 Draft, and as a separate editable word file. The HLPE also encourages the submission of further material, references and evidence on the performance and impact of existing MSPs in the field of FSN. In order to strengthen the report, the HLPE welcomes all the suggestions, including contributions regarding the following questions: The purpose of the report is to analyze the role of MSPs in improving and financing FSN. Do you think that this draft is striking the right balance and give enough space to finance related issues? What are the constraints to raising funds for FSN? Is the structure of the report comprehensive enough, and adequately articulated? Are the concepts clearly defined and used consistently throughout the report? Are there important aspects that are missing? Are there any major omissions or gaps in the report? Are there topics under-or over-represented in relation to their importance? Are any facts or

Extension of deadline to 1st December! HLPE Electronic Consultation on the scope of the Report: Agroecological approaches and other innovations

Extension of deadline to 1st December!  HLPE Electronic Consultation on the scope of the Report: Agroecological approaches and other innovations for sustainable agriculture and food systems that enhance food security and nutrition During its 44th Plenary Session (9-13 October 2017), the CFS requested the HLPE to produce a report on “Agroecological approaches and other innovations for sustainable agriculture and food systems that enhance food security and nutrition”, to be presented at CFS46 Plenary session in October 2019. As part of its report elaboration process, the HLPE is launching an e-consultation to seek views and comments on the following scope and building blocks of the report, outlined below, as proposed by the HLPE Steering Committee. Please note that in parallel to this scoping consultation, the HLPE is calling for interested experts to candidate to the Project Team for this report. The Project Team will be selected by the end of 2017 and will work until June 2019. The call for candidature is open until 15 November 2017; visit the HLPE website www.fao.org/cfs/cfs-hlpe for more details Proposed draft Scope of the HLPE Report by the HLPE Steering Committee Innovation has been a major engine for agriculture transformation in the past decades and will be pivotal to address the needs of a rapidly growing population and the increased pressure over natural resources (including biodiversity, land and water) in a context of climate change. Agroecology and other innovative approaches, practices and technologies can play a critical role to strengthen sustainable agriculture and food systems in order to successfully combat hunger, malnutrition and poverty and contribute to the advancement of the 2030 Agenda. Building sustainable agriculture and food systems that enhance food security and nutrition (FSN) will require not only to develop new knowledge and technologies but also: to fill the technology gaps; to facilitate the effective access and use of existing technologies; and to develop context-specific solutions, adapted to local food systems and local ecosystems. Beyond technical issues, this report will assess the importance of bottom-up and people-centered approaches, building on different forms of knowledge, as well as the role of good governance and strong institutions. It will explore the enabling conditions needed to foster scientific, technical, financial, political and institutional innovations for enhanced FSN. Agroecology, described simultaneously as a science, a set of practices and a social movement, will be studied in this report, as an example of such holistic innovative approaches combining science and

2nd HLPE Note on Critical and Emerging Issues

2nd HLPE Note on Critical and Emerging Issues May 2016 As requested by the Committee on World Food Security of the United Nations (CFS) on the 2nd of August 2016, the High Level Panel of Experts on Food Security and Nutrition (HLPE) has produced second note on “Critical and Emerging Issues for Food Security and Nutrition”. This note will be presented during the the 44th Plenary Session of the CFS, in October 2017. This note is the result of a dedicated, extensive process, launched by the HLPE in August 2016 that involved a wide range of knowledge institutions and comprised an open public enquiry, 3 conferences co-organized with specific institutions that allowed direct interaction between different knowledge holders and political decision-makers, as well as a scientific, external peer-review on a first draft of this note. The whole process is fully transparent and detailed in the documents available at this page: The 2nd Note on Critical and Emerging Issues for Food Security and Nutrition; A Synthesis of the contributions received, outlining the objectives of the study and the methodology adopted to analyze the inputs; The full proceedings of the Enquiry The outcomes of the 3 conferences Columbia University (5 May 2016) Hohenheim University (27 September 2016) Agropolis (1 December 2016) The HLPE Steering Committee hopes that this second note will help progress towards enhanced FSN in the overall framework of the 2030 Agenda. The HLPE Steering Committee wishes to thank all the experts and the organizations/institutions who contributed to this process. December 2016 Critical and Emerging Issues Open Inquiry – 2016 Edition The deadline is postponed to the 2nd of December!!!!! The High Level Panel of Experts on Food Security and Nutrition (HLPE), is launching, at the request of the UN Committee on World Food Security (CFS) a study on critical and emerging issues in the area of food security and nutrition, to inform the work of the CFS. This work is in line with one of the key functions of the HLPE, science-policy interface of the CFS, which is to “identify emerging issues, and help members prioritize future actions and attentions on key focal areas”. By definition, emerging issues are challenging to identify. This is why the HLPE seeks to involve very largely the scientific and knowledge community by requesting this community, in its wide diversity, to provide documented inputs on those issues which are considered critical and emerging for

HLPE Report Multistakeholder Partnerships

HLPE Report on Multistakeholder Partnerships to Finance and Improve Food Security and Nutrition in the Framework of the 2030 Agenda During its 43rd Plenary Session (17-21 October 2016), the CFS requested the HLPE to produce a report on “Multistakeholder Partnerships to Finance and Improve Food Security and Nutrition in the Framework of the 2030 Agenda” to be presented at CFS45 Plenary session in October 2018. As part of its report elaboration process, the HLPE is launching an e-consultation to seek views and comments on the following scope and building blocks of the report, outlined below, as proposed by the HLPE Steering Committee. Deadline for contributions 31 of January 2017. Proposed draft Scope of the HLPE Report by the HLPE Steering Committee Multistakeholder partnerships (MSPs) combine resources and expertise of different actors, which has made them attractive as a way to address complex issues that cannot easily be solved by a single actor. MSPs are identified in SDG 17 (in particular articles 17.6 and 17.7) as a central tool in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda. They will be key in sharing experiences, technologies, knowledges, and in mobilising domestic and foreign, public and private resources, in line with the Addis Ababa Action Agenda (AAAA) and with the CFS principles for Responsible Investment in Agriculture and Food systems (CFS-RAI). The report shall explore the notion of multistakeholder partnerships related to food security and nutrition, looking at both processes and outcomes. The report shall assess the effectiveness of MSPs in realizing their objectives, in financing and improving FSN outcomes, as well as their contribution to the governance of food systems. The report shall suggest methods to map the different categories of MSPs, and criteria to assess them against the objective of improving their contribution to FSN in the framework of the 2030 Agenda. The report shall address the following questions: Who are the stakeholders in food security and nutrition? What are the interests and motivations of each stakeholder? How to attract and retain partners? What are their various levels of responsibility? How to define “multistakeholder partnership” for food security and nutrition? What are the existing types of partnerships for financing and improving food security and nutrition? What are the tensions between the nature of these stakeholders and the functions of the partnerships? What are the goals, effectiveness, impact and performance of various forms of MSPs in reaching FSN objectives, in the context of the 2030 Agenda? What criteria,

Nutrition and Food Systems. HLPE Consultation on the zero Draft

Communication from the HLPE Project Team and Steering Committee Read the Zero Draft of the HLPE Report on Nutrition and Food Systems To join the CSM Working Group on Nutrition write an email to cso4cfs@gmail.com   Deadline for inputs 5 December 2016 At its 42nd session in October 2015, the UN Committee on World Food Security (CFS) requested the High Level Panel of Experts on Food Security and Nutrition (HLPE) to prepare a report on Nutrition and Food Systems. This report is expected to be presented at CFS 44 in October 2017. As part of the process of elaboration of its reports, the HLPE is organizing a consultation to seek inputs, suggestions, and comments on the present V0 draft. This open e-consultation will be used by the HLPE to further elaborate the report, which will then be submitted to external expert review, before finalization and approval by the HLPE Steering Committee. HLPE V0 drafts are deliberately presented early enough in the process – as a work-in-progress, with their range of imperfections – to allow sufficient time to give proper consideration to the feedback received so that it can play a really useful role in the elaboration of the report. It is a key part of the scientific dialogue between the HLPE Project Team and Steering Committee, and the rest of the knowledge community. It should be noted that the present V0 draft report does not yet identify areas for recommendations as it is too early to determine the major propositions stemming from the report. It should be noted that there are several reports that have just been released or will be released over the coming year including the Foresight Report on the Future of Diets (September 2016) and the EAT-Lancet Commission on Sustainable Diets and Food Systems (June 2017). The Project Team members will ensure that these reports will be kept in due consideration. In order to strengthen this draft, the HLPE would welcome submission of material, evidence-based suggestions, references, and examples, in particular addressing the following important questions: The purpose of this report is to analyse the ways in which food systems influence dietary patterns and hence nutritional outcomes. The objective is to focus on consumers and consider sustainability issues. The report aims to be solution oriented and to highlight efficient policies and programs. Are those major objective(s) clearly reflected in the V0 draft? Do you think that the
