The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Food Programme (WFP) have recently launched an online public consultation to obtain inputs on how the UN agencies can collaborate in key areas in the coming years.
The consultation will feed into the operationalization of FAO's Strategic Framework 2022-2031 and the preparation of WFP's Strategic Plan 2022-2026. The platform provides a space to hear from partners on concrete ways to accelerate the achievement of shared goals and common approaches towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The consultation will focus on five main themes:
- Impact of COVID-19 on global development goals;
- Climate and the Environment;
- Gender Equality;
- Strengthening Data and Innovation;
- Inclusion and Equity, including leaving no one behind.
The online consultation is held on the engagement platform SparkBlue and ends on May 12, 2021.
FAO's Strategic Framework 2022-2031, which will be submitted to the FAO Conference 2021 for approval, seeks to support the 2030 Agenda through the transformation to more efficient, inclusive, resilient, and sustainable, agri-food systems for better production, better nutrition, a better environment, and a better life, leaving no one behind.
