The Food Security and Nutrition (FSN) Forum launched a consultation on climate change.

A good opportunity for making an impact... this consultation is aimed at gathering inputs on the Version 0 draft of the report of the High Level Panel of Experts on climate change and food security. The consultation will go on until Tue 10th of April 2012
You are encouraged to participate in the consultation as explained herebelow in the message from Reuben Sessa of the FAO Inter-Departmental Working Group on Climate Change:

Other topics and questions in the consultation:
  • An important audience for this report is national policy makers concerned with agriculture and food security and their staff. Does the report include sufficient information to support the policy messages and is it written in a way that captures the complexity of the challenges to food security from climate change while not being too technical?
  • It is not possible to provide detailed policy recommendations for specific countries, regions, or groups. Instead we propose a series of policy messages that are intended to provide guidance for developing nationally-relevant policies and programs and that can also assist international efforts. Have we chosen the best set of topics? How could our policy messages be improved? Have important messages been omitted?
  • The chapter on adaptation is incomplete. We would especially value input on whether the concepts presented in annotated outline form cover appropriate material or whether additional topics need to be covered, and some current items eliminated. These inputs will be used to guide the drafting of the final version of this chapter.
  • The report proposes three high level policy messages with detailed recommendations under each. Are these the most important messages for national and international policy makers? How can the text be improved to convey these (or other) messages?
    1. Climate change responses should be complementary to, not independent of, activities that are needed for sustainable food security.
    2. Climate change adaptation and mitigation require national activities and global coordination
    3. Public-public and public-private partnerships are essential”.
