Global Food Governance. How can the EU lead the way?

12 July 2018, 12-14 hrs
Representation of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia to the EU, Brussels

Conference language: English

Enough food is produced worldwide to feed humanity, yet more than 815 million people in the world are undernourished. Since the food price crisis of 2007 and 2008, a number of initiatives and reforms have been implemented. On a global level, the UN Committee on World Food Security (CFS) was reformed in 2009 into a highly legitimate policy forum. At European level, the EU Food Security Policy Framework (FSPF) was adopted in 2010 to address food security challenges in developing countries.

What is the vision for global governance for food and nutrition security? How can the EU and its Member States help to improve use of CFS products? How to ensure that EU priorities in other policy areas – such as trade or the Common Agricultural Policy – can be made more coherent with the European food security policy?

sef: and CIDSE – International Alliance of Catholic Development Agencies will debate these questions during a Policy Lunch on the topic of “Global Food Governance. How can the EU lead the way?”.

sef: Bonn Symposium 2018

Rethinking local sustainable development

 

UPCOMING EVENT

The “transformation of our world” onto a sustainable path – as agreed upon by the UN member states in the Agenda 2030 – requires more than one-off projects. How can a  fundamental change in policies, in the society and the economy be initiated? What can municipalities contribute to this shift towards sustainable development and how can the local impetus be escalated to the other political levels? The Bonn Symposium 2018 aims to stimulate ideas and inject fresh momentum into the debate about these issues.

Anchoring global governance in societies

UPCOMING EVENT

The opponents of global cooperation touch a nerve when they talk about global governance as an elitist project. The embedding of global governance at a societal level remains relatively weak. In our International sef: Expert Workshop 2018, we therefore aim to identify new strategies which could contribute to the progressive anchoring of global governance in society.

The Global Refugee Crisis: Towards a just response

NEW ISSUE PUBLISHED

With their effort to keep refugees and migrants out of their territories, Western nations abdicate their historical and political responsibility, according to the analysis of the renowned Indian migration researcher B.S. Chimni in GLOBAL TRENDS. ANALYSIS 03|2018. Chimni therefore calls for a just response from the international community to the global refugee crisis. Such a response could only consist of a multidimensional strategy that had to be worked out in a genuine dialogue between all stakeholders.
