Achieving sustainable food security and nutrition

The semniar 'Achieving sustainable food security and nutrition' will be a debate about livestock, fish, water and food losses.

Food security and good nutrition are influenced by a range of issues, with a wide range of stakeholders concerned. To address food insecurity requires an integrated approach. It requires interventions and strong policies from local to global levels.

This international seminar will discuss, in four sessions, four important issues related to sustainable food security and nutrition, inscribed on the policy agenda of the United Nations Committee on World Food Security (CFS), and on the scientific agenda of the High Level of Experts on Food Security (HLPE), with Danish, Scandinavian and global perspectives:

  • The role of livestock in achieving sustainable food security and nutrition
  • Sustainable management of water resources for food production and health
  • Sustainable fishery and aquaculture as contributors to food security and nutrition
  • Reducing food losses and wastes for improving food security

Each session will consist of two presentations, of which one will report on HLPE work on the issue, followed by a panel discussion and discussions/Q&A with the audience.
