20 April 2012 – DFI supports Commonwealth-OIF Outreach with G20 on Food Security

Monday, 11 June 2012 15:10

Comsec_SecretariatOIFDFI has contributed to a joint Commonwealth Secretariat – Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie paper on food security, which presents the perspectives of their smallest, poorest and most vulnerable member countries. The paper was presented at an outreach meeting with Mexico, which encouraged a continued focus on food security during Mexico’s G20 Presidency. Drawing on their own experiences, developing country participants ranked food insecurity among the most urgent priorities to reduce poverty and achieve sustainable growth. They called for a cohesive set of measures to increase food production and access, including securing longer-term commitments for investment, financial and technical assistance; adapting new research; and developing tools to help increase productivity for smallholders and promoting long-term sustainable use of natural resources.
