CFS Side Event, 15 October 2019, 18.00-19.30, Philippines Room, FAO, Rome, Italy

Presentation and Discussion of Innovative Multistakeholder Actions and Examples of Good Practices

The Global Agenda for Sustainable Livestock had the chance to create a Side Event during the Committee of Food Security (CFS) in Rome together with the International Livestock Research Institute (ILR), the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD). The goal of this side event was to demonstrate the essential roles of the livestock sector for sustainability improving food and nutrition security. Innovative solutions developed and implemented through a multistakeholder partnership approach were illustrated to stimulate audience engagement and identification of opportunities. The speakers shared diverse perspectives from across the livestock sector with special focus on silvopastral systems (Mauroni Cangussú) and the dairy sector (Donald Moore).
