    Making Food Systems more Sustainable to Ensure the Promotion of Healthy Diets - GCP/GLO/964/GER 2021
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Combating malnutrition in all its forms – undernutrition, micronutrient deficiencies, overweight and obesity – is among the most pressing challenges facing countries today. The global governance architecture of food security and nutrition involves a wide range of actors, agencies, platforms and initiatives. Increasingly, the Rome-based agencies of the United Nations, cooperating among themselves through the Committee on World Food Security (CFS), have become pivotal to global policy guidance, monitoring of Sustainable Development Goal 2 and efforts towards zero hunger. The project was designed to complement resources and contribute to voluntary support for the CFS policy convergence process, in turn leading to the finalization of the Voluntary Guidelines on Food Systems and Nutrition (VGFSyN). These Guidelines are expected to contribute to improving food systems and make them more sustainable to ensure the promotion of healthy diets. They will provide a global consensus document for governments and other stakeholders on the appropriate policies, investments and institutional arrangements needed to address the key causes of malnutrition in all its forms.

    Preparing the CFS Voluntary Guidelines on Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment in the Context of Food Security and Nutrition - GCP/GLO/493/MUL 2024
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Despite years of progress and global commitments, gender disparities and discrimination in food security persist around the world, particularly affecting women and girls in vulnerable situations. To address these issues, the Committee on World Food Security (CFS) included the development of a set of Voluntary Guidelines on Gender Equality and Women’s and Girls’ Empowerment in the context of Food Security and Nutrition in its 2020–2023 Multi-Year Programme of Work (MYPoW). The Guidelines, which were prepared under this project, aimed to (i) support CFS Member States, development partners and other stakeholders to advance the rights of women and girls, as well as gender equality and women’s and girls’ empowerment (GEWGE) in their efforts to eradicate hunger, food insecurity and malnutrition; and (ii) to provide guidance to countries as they work to contribute to the achievement of CFS’s vision and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 2 (Zero Hunger) and 5 (Gender Equality).

    Supporting Sustainable Development Goal SDG 2.1 Monitoring by Strengthening Food Security and Nutrition Information in Africa GCP/GLO/943/JP
    Improving data collection and analysis to monitor progress towards the SDG targets using robust, statistically sound indicators for food and nutrition security
    2022

    As African countries race against time to end hunger by 2030, improved country data is critical in tracking progress toward achieving Sustainable Development Goals 2 on zero hunger, nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture. The indicators used to monitor progress towards achievement of SDG 2 is the Prevalence of Undernourishment (PoU) and the Prevalence of moderate and severe food insecurity based on the Food Insecurity Experience Scale (FIES). However, the quality of data produced by countries that is necessary to produce these indicators has historically been limited. FAO is enhancing national capacities to collect, analyze and monitor data on food and nutrition security using standardized tools that are internationally comparable to guide policies to end hunger and malnutrition.
