Water for food security and nutrition. A premiere of the Report of the High Level Panel of Experts on Food Security and Nutrition for the UN Committee on World Food Security (CFS)

· Coordinator :
High Level Panel of Experts on Food Security and Nutrition

The High Level Panel of Experts on Food Security and Nutrition (HLPE) will present its Report on Water for Food Security and Nutrition. A debate with panelists and the audience will follow the presentation. The HLPE is the science-policy interface of the UN Committee on World Food Security (CFS). HLPE Reports serve as the starting point for multi-stakeholder discussions in CFS for policy convergence and coordination of actions around food security issues. The report was requested by the CFS to feed into CFSs policy convergence discussions in October 2015.
The report, in the follow-up of major international discussions, provides a state-of-the-art review as well as recommendations addressed to all stakeholders on water for food security and nutrition. Water has an important role in food security through its multiple impacts on: health and nutrition (drinking water, cooking water, sanitary aspect/diseases), on agricultural production (access to water, water management, improvement of irrigation and dryland agriculture) and on food processing (water management, quality of water…), with important gender-related aspects. The HLPE report assesses the impacts of water management and water governance on food security and nutrition and provide recommendations so as to improve water policies for food security and better nutrition, as well as coordination among the different fields and actors at all levels, with a long-term perspective.
