    Linkages between the Voluntary Guidelines for Securing Sustainable Small-Scale Fisheries in the Context of Food Security and Poverty Eradication and the Framework for Action for Food Security and Nutrition in Protracted Crises 2020
    Small-scale fisheries communities in coastal areas or close to freshwater bodies are often highly vulnerable to a range of hazards (climate change, etc.) beyond their control. Frequent social, economic and political marginalization makes small-scale fisheries communities particularly susceptible to being affected by protracted crises. Two international instruments provide guidance on how to better address these issues: the Voluntary Guidelines for Securing Sustainable SmallScale Fisheries in the Context of Food Security and Poverty Eradication (SSF Guidelines) and the The Committee on World Food Security Framework for Action for Food Security and Nutrition in Protracted Crises (CFS-FFA). The brief gives and overview of both instruments and and explains their synergies. This brief is part of a series that brings attention to the mutually reinforcing nature of four global normative instruments developed through the Committee on World Food Security (CFS) and the SSF Guidelines. Their synergistic implementation can make a difference in enabling small-scale fisheries actors to contribute to sustainable food systems by providing highly nutritious food for local communities, and it can make a difference for consumers in national, regional and international markets. The four CFS instruments with direct links to the SSF Guidelines are the CFS Voluntary Guidelines to Support the Progressive Realization of the Right to Adequate Food in the Context of National Food Security (Right to Food Guidelines), the CFS Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security (VGGT), the CFS Principles for Responsible Investment in Agriculture and Food Systems (CFS-RAI Principles) and the CFS Framework for Action for Food Security and Nutrition in Protracted Crisis (CFS-FFA).

    Despite high economic growth, increasing per capita income, and high agricultural production and productivity, Asia-Pacific remains home to the majority of the world's poor and hungry. The region faces several challenges and constraints to sustainable agricultural development which call for collaboration at regional and subregional levels to attain sustainable poverty reduction and food security. To address these issues, FAO, UNESCAP and ADB jointly organized a roundtable meeting in Bangkok, Tha iland on 23 to 24 February 2004 to discuss how Asia and the Pacific can meet the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and World Food Summit Declaration through opportunities offered by subregional and regional collaboration, derive lessons learned and formulate a future course of action. The report provides a summary of the discussions and statements made by the high-level participants, as well as the Declaration adopted by the roundtable.
