03/09/2014 – Food Security consultation: open until 14 September 2014

A review of Dutch food security policy is in the makings. By the end of this year, the Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Economic Affairs will send a joint food security policy paper to the Dutch Parliament. The Food & Business Knowledge Platform has established this online consultation to ensure that the newest topics and debates on food security are included in the paper. The Office of the Platform will produce a summary of all contributions and send it to the Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Economic Affairs. All contributions will remain available online.

The Platform invites you to contribute to this consultation. In exploring the possibilities for reviewing its food security policy and possibly including emerging topics, the Dutch government is looking in particular at opportunities to link up with recent international debates and developments. Examples might be inequality, green and inclusive growth, climate change, and a fair distribution of global public goods.

LANDac also especially invites contributions highlighting land governance issues in relation to food security.
