Post 2015: informal consultation with CFS and CSOs reaction

An informal Consultation with CFS stakeholders was convened by FAO and WFP on February 11th, 2013 in Rome, in the context of Global Thematic Consultation on Hunger, Food Security and Nutrition towards  the Post-2015 Development Agenda. Critics were raised from civil society side regarding the consultation process that was preceded by an e-consultation and will culminate in a High Level Consultation co-hosted by Government of Spain and Colombia in Madrid, April 4th.
More and Better, together with the Civil Society’s Organizations (CSOs) which attended the informal consultation, has signed on to a letter addressed to the organizers requesting to:
apply the Committee on World Food Security (CFS) standard for consultation with civil society in the whole process; recognize the CFS as the foremost forum of deliberation and decision-making on food security issues; recognize the Global Strategic Framework, as the primary, over-arching policy guidance for governments and other stakeholders in their efforts to eradicate hunger.
