    The High-Level Workshop will include a range of government officials including from the Minister of the President and the Mayor of Kampala, as well as several important donors. The meeting is not only significant for the country but overall, for FAO’s work on the topic in other countries, in addition to building stronger UN partnerships, in particular with UNEP and UNDP. The intention of the meeting is to improve alignment within FAO and with UN partners, with regards country policies to accelerate food systems transformation, and to contribute to the national food system dialogue processes.

    The response to the antimicrobial resistance (AMR) crisis has been spearheaded through the Global Action Plan on Antimicrobial Resistance (GAP-AMR), developed by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2015 in close collaboration with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Organisation for Animal Health (WOAH), and formally endorsed by the three organizations' governing bodies and by the Political Declaration of the high-level meeting of the United Nations General Assembly on AMR in 2016. In 2022, the three organizations officially became the Quadripartite, adding the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) to the Alliance "to accelerate the coordination strategy for human, animal and ecosystem health." By adopting the GAP-AMR, countries agreed to develop National Action Plans (NAPs) aligned with the GAP-AMR to mainstream AMR interventions nationally. This country M&E guidance document was developed as a reference for countries to support the development and delivery of AMR NAPs. It assists in establishing an M&E plan for their AMR NAP, building on existing national reporting systems and recommended indicators from the GAP-AMR M&E framework.

    Accelerating Action on Food Security and Nutrition in Pacific Small Island Developing States (SIDS) 2018
    The Global Action Programme (GAP) on Food Security and Nutrition in Small Island Developing States (SIDS) was launched in July 2017 with the aim of accelerating action on food security and nutrition to support the sustainable development of SIDS. Realizing the benefits of the GAP at the community level requires tailoring the Programme to the specific social, cultural and technological characteristics of individual countries in the various SIDS regions. Accordingly, a ‘Regional Framework for Accelerating Action on Food Security and Nutrition in Pacific SIDS’ (Pacific Framework) is under development and FAO will deliver its contribution to the Pacific Framework through the Inter-Regional Initiative (IRI) on SIDS. The IRI includes a cross-regional component to promote south-south cooperation, partnerships and experience sharing, as well as components designed to address the specificities and requirements of the three SIDS regions. This paper further presents the approach to developing the Pacific components of the GAP and IRI, and outlines initial FAO activities under the IRI up to December 2018. Ministers are invited to provide guidance on preferred priority actions as proposed under the Pacific Framework and the Inter-Regional Initiative as mechanisms through which FAO will deliver its contribution to the implementation of the GAP in the Pacific SIDS region. At the 11 November 2017 Informal Dialogue Meeting between the FAO Director-General and the leaders of the Pacific Islands region, at FAO headquarters, Pacific Leaders called for an expanded partnership between FAO and the Pacific Islands Forum, the Secretariat of the Pacific Community and the Pacific Islands Forum Fisheries. In this regard, Members are also invited to provide guidance to the Secretariat on how mainstreaming / integrating the GAP into key Pacific regional fora can be accelerated and what priority actions are to be taken by FAO towards enhancing collaboration and partnerships with traditional and new partners for improving food security and nutrition in the Pacific SIDS region.
