    The workshop brought together 86 participants from 13 Member Countries (Algeria, Egypt, Iran, Jordan, Lebanon,Morocco, occupied Palestinian territories, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia and Yemen), as well as UN agencies including WFP and IFAD as part of the joint CFS Secretariat, NGOs, farmers associations, private sector, civil society, donors and other funding institutions and regional organizations.The Near East is one of the driest regions in the world and many of its countries suf fer from water shortages and deteriorating land quality which both impact food production. Traditional agriculture is dominant and extreme climatic events critically undermine efforts for its sustainable development. A high population growth rate has increased both rural and urban unemployment which, coupled with widespread poverty, exacerbates the food insecurity situation and undernourishment. In many countries agricultural development and food security have also been threatened by civil strif e and social tensions that are part of socio-political transition.The Near East Regional Multi-stakeholder Workshop on Food Security and Nutrition was organized in response to the recommendation of the FAO Regional Conference for the Near East (NERC) at its 30th Session in Khartoum, Sudan, December 2010. The FAO Regional Office for the Near East (FAO/RNE) and The Committee on World Food Security (CFS), in collaboration with other relevant UN agencies, were recommended to jointly convene a worksh op prior to the 37th Session of CFS (17th – 22nd October 2011) in order to strengthen linkages and to reach common consensus on regional food security issues.Topics discussed at Policy Roundtables included volatile food prices, investment in small-holder agriculture and gender, food security and nutrition. These three topics mirrored the Policy Roundtables at the 37th Session of CFS and are very important in the region. A further Policy Roundtable was held on the effect of the current sociopolit ical transition in some countries on food security and nutrition.
