Call for Contributions on Changing Rural-Urban Dynamics!

Call for contributions On February 3rd, 2017 the Open Ended Working Group (OEWG) of the CFS on Urbanization and Rural Transformation (UR&RT) adopted a “CALL FOR EXPERIENCES AND POLICY APPROACHES IN ADDRESSING FOOD SECURITY AND NUTRITION IN THE CONTEXT OF CHANGING RURAL-URBAN DYNAMICS”, which includes the template for submission of case studies in all UN official languages EN, ES, FR, RU, AR, CH.

The case studies can be submitted in all official UN languages (AR, CH, EN, ES, FR, RU), using this template and should not exceed 1000 words.

The CFS lunched the work stream on urbanization and rural transformation in December 2015 and so far it was focused on the identification of the policy relevant areas for the CFS arising from urbanization and rural transformation.

It is expected that based on the analysis of the submitted documents, the CFS will identify key messages to be discussed on the CFS 44 forum.
