CIDSE Highlights No.41, May - June 2019
Today, the High-Level Panel of Experts (HLPE) of the UN Committee on world Food Security (CFS) is launching its report on “Agroecological approaches and other innovations for sustainable agriculture and food systems that enhance food security and nutrition”. This report will be discussed at the October CFS plenary session and should lead to the adoption of recommendations in October 2020. This comes at a crucial time as agroecology is clearly gaining ground at the international level; FAO and IPBES have both recently highlighted the high potential of agroecology to achieve respectively the Sustainable Development Goals, the Paris Agreement and the Convention on Biological Diversity. CIDSE has long been fighting for agroecology to be fully acknowledged and supported by governments. In this regard, the HLPE’s publication adds to the wealth of reports, studies and initiatives calling for agroecology to be put on the political agenda.

In every part of the world, women working on the land, in fisheries and picking crops have always been part of food production, rearing animals, processing crops in local markets and in protecting water sources and forests. In addition to those in front-line production, women in Non-Governmental Organizations, agricultural advisory services, teaching and public service are focusing on today’s problems and looking for alternatives to meet the challenges of making a decent living fairly and sustainably in rural areas and on our planet.
