    In light of the increasing recognition of the role of forests in food security and nutrition, the 41st Session of the Committee on World Food Security (CFS) in 2014 requested the High Level Panel of Experts on Food Security and Nutrition (HLPE) to prepare a report on “Sustainable Forestry for Food Security and Nutrition”. The report was officially launched in June 2017 as a major contribution to the Policy Convergence process of the 44th Session of the CFS in October 2017. The outcomes of the Policy Convergence process on “Sustainable Forestry for Food Security and Nutrition” from the 44th Session of CFS , among others, calls for a stronger collaboration to promote an integrated approach including the nexus among forestry, agriculture, water, food security and nutrition to strengthen policy coherence across sectors. The event will offer an opportunity to discuss how to bring different sectors together for integrated landscape management and sustainable forest management to enhance the benefit of sustainable forestry for food security and nutrition. This will be illustrated by a regional initiative led by ASEAN which has developed a Multi-sectoral Framework on Climate and Food Security (AFCC). This framework was endorsed by the ASEAN Ministers on Agriculture and Forestry (AMAF) in 2009. The event will offer the opportunity to discuss ways to apply and replicate the ASEAN model in other regions and countries.
