EWN comments on CFS Study on Water and Food Security

Zero Draft © CFS-HLPE

05 November 2014

In October 2013, the Committee on World  Food Security (CFS) requested the High Level Panel of Experts on Food Security and Nutrition (HLPE) to prepare a report on “Water and Food Security”. Final findings of the study will feed into the CFS 42nd session in October 2015.

As part of the process of elaboration of its reports, the HLPE now seeks inputs, suggestions, comments on the present zero draft (V0 draft). This e-consultation will be used by the HLPE to further elaborate the report, which will then be submitted to external expert review, before finalization and approval by the HLPE Steering Committee.

The introduction of the study says “the present draft identifies areas for recommendations, and the HLPE would welcome any related evidence-based suggestions or proposals. We would also appreciate if this draft is not cited or quoted until it is finalised.”

Responding to the above call the Ecumenical Water Network, an important stakeholder of the study process, has commented on the zero draft of the study. To read the comments of EWN on the CFS website please click here.
