    The Thirteenth Session of the Fisheries and Resources Monitoring System (FIRMS) Steering Committee (FSC13) was held in London, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (Hybrid meeting) on 26–27 and 30 June 2023. Driven by a survey on the use of FIRMS by partners and relevant institutions, the FSC13 deliberated strategic decisions for the next decade, including the timely data provision in support to the FAO SOFIA State of Stocks (SoS), the contribution to the design and reporting on fisheries management in context of the new FAO COFI sub-committee on fisheries, prioritizing the strengthening of small-scale fisheries data collection, and fostering interoperability among partners’ databases. Along those key decisions, FSC13 agreed for further work on the FIRMS Global Tuna Atlas (GTA), on the Global Record of Stocks and Fisheries (GRSF) and on FIRMS standards and terminologies for which several definitions were reviewed and approved. A workplan was elaborated to address all decisions made by FSC13 covering also the upgrade of the FIRMS system and the support to capacity building to FIRMS Partners.

    The concept outlines the context, objectives, target audience, agenda and speakers for two linked live online events on the costs and affordability of healthy diets. The first is a World Bank Online Event on Thursday, July 14th followed by an IFPRI Policy Seminar on July 15th, both co-organized by FAO and Tufts University. These two events follow on from the July 12th official launch The State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World 2022 report which announced the latest updates to the UN system’s standardized global data on the Cost and Affordability of a Healthy Diet (CoAHD). Those data provide official FAO statistics for the daily cost of a healthy diet as well as the number and percentage of people who cannot afford a healthy diet in each country. The two online events are designed to equip decision-makers and analysts with the newly release findings can be used to guide agricultural and agrifood systems towards improved nutrition. The World Bank will also disseminate those three headline estimates plus more granular data and indicators on diet costs and affordability in a new Food Prices for Nutrition Data Hub.
