In October 2014, the UN Committee on World Food Security (CFS) requested the High Level Panel of Experts on Food Security and Nutrition (HLPE) to conduct a study on Sustainable Forestry for Food Security and Nutrition. The findings of this study will feed into CFS 44 Plenary session (October 2017).
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
HLPE welcomes submission of material, evidence-based suggestions, references, and examples, in particular addressing important questions. Note especially question number 6: The social and cultural dimensions of sustainable forestry and food security and nutrition (FSN) have often been less well described and understood for many reasons, including due to a lack of comprehensive as well as disaggregated data. Submission of examples and experience related to issues such as livelihoods, gender, equity, tenure and governance would be of particular interest to the team.
