Boosting the role of farmers in a fairer value chain

WFO has committed to organizing a Side Event at the 45th Session of the Committee on World Food Security (CFS 45).
It will be a great occasion to make farmers’ voice heard and respected in the debate on food security and nutrition.

The theme of this year Side Event will be “Boosting the role of farmers in a fairer value chain”, with a view to promote the key role of local economies in the achievement of global food security and environmental protection.

The meeting will feature the participation of farmers leaders, representatives of multilateral organizations, governments, private sector entities and civil society, to discuss how short supply chains, value chain contracts and origin labelling can ensure more value added to farmers to support food security.
All the topics will be discussed in a holistic manner, thus achieving an inspiring and constructive exchange among all the actors of the entire value chain.

More information and updates on the Side Event timetable will be circulated as soon as possible.
