Date & Time: 3 June, 16:00 – 17:30 CEST
In the context of the upcoming Committee on World Food Security plenary session, IFOAM - Organics International will lead a side event:
How can diversification in agriculture based on agroecology ensure resilience and dietary diversity for family farmers at times of pandemic or crisis?
The event seeks to analyse the potential of crop diversification (inspired by agroecological practices) and its positive effects on farming families, not only during the pandemic but in any context of crisis.
The Committee on World Food Security (CFS) is holding a Special Session of the 48th Plenary on 4 June to endorse the CFS Policy Recommendations on Agroecological and Other Innovative Approaches. The endorsement of the Policy Recommendations was moved from CFS 47 (held in February 2021) as their negotiations and completion was delayed due to COVID-19.
Along with the CFS, there will be ten side-events held from 3 - 4 June.
The full side events schedule is available here.
