    Preparatory events towards the Second Global Parliamentary Summit against Hunger and Malnutrition 2022
    Also available in:

    Given that parliamentary action to tackle hunger and malnutrition is more necessary than ever, AECID and FAO plan to bring parliamentarians together for the Second Global Parliamentary Summit against Hunger and Malnutrition, to be held in 2023. The forthcoming Summit aims to take stock of the issues, ideas and actions discussed during the virtual parliamentary dialogues and UNFSS and to stimulate further parliamentary action to build on progress made since the 2018 Summit. In so doing, it seeks to contribute towards a redoubling of efforts to end hunger and malnutrition in all its forms by 2030. FAO and IISD have organized a series of events to support the preparation of the forthcoming Summit and thereby ensure that it is able to facilitate useful exchanges of experiences between parliamentarians and stimulate renewed parliamentary action to tackle hunger and malnutrition. These events aim to raise parliamentarians’ awareness about important issues relevant to efforts to tackle hunger and malnutrition, to stimulate discussion, debate and knowledge exchange among parliamentarians, to share FAO tools, to capture and document relevant insights and experiences and to inform the agenda for the forthcoming Summit.
