Reaching those left furthest behind: Addressing hunger and poverty in protracted crises

12 July 2017, 13:15 - 14:30 EDT - United Nations HQ, Conference Room 6 (New York, USA)

CFS side event at the 2017 High Level Political Forum (HLPF).

Why are protracted crises situations particularly complex to address, and why do they call for an integrated and coordinated response? This event will raise understanding of the need to bring humanitarian assistance and longer-term development efforts together in protracted crises contexts. The CFS Framework for Action for Food Security and Nutrition in Protracted Crises (CFS-FFA) provides policy guidance to governments and all stakeholders to address immediate food security and nutrition needs, strengthen the resilience of agricultural systems and livelihoods and work towards achieving the SDGs.
UNSCN Coordinator, Ms Stineke Oenema, will moderate the event.
