CFS Forum on Urbanization, Rural Transformation, and Implications for Food Security and Nutrition

The CFS will host an interactive forum on urbanization and rural transformation on Thursday October 20th, at FAO Headquarters in Rome, as part of the 43rd plenary session of the CFS. The purpose of the forum will be to take stock of changing rural-urban dynamics as they relate to food security, to share practical experiences on addressing food security with an integrated rural-urban approach, and to identify potential next steps for the CFS on this topic.
