FAO: sustainable food systems
FAO and UNEP are jointly developing a programme on sustainable food systems under the 10-Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production Patterns (10YFP- http://www.unep.org/10yfp/). It builds upon the experience and work under the FAO/UNEP Sustainable Food Systems Programme (http://www.fao.org/ag/ags/sustainable-food-consumption-and-production/en/), with the support of Switzerland.
As part of this process, FAO and UNEP are organizing a public consultation in order to:
- take stock of information on initiatives of relevance for the development of the Programme,
- collect comments and input on a short draft concept note, for the further development of the Programme
- collect potential expressions of interest of entities to participate in the Programme
The consultation is open from 13.03.2015 to 17.4.2015
The results of the consultation will be used to further develop the programme with the support and guidance of a multistakeholder advisory committee.
More details on the process are available on the Web site of the 10YFP.
We particularly encourage those of you who are engaged in sustainable food systems to take advantage of this event. Your contributions will be particularly valuable.
