The Voluntary Guidelines to Support the Progressive Realization of the Right to Adequate Food in the Context of National Food Security were endorsed by the Committee on World Food Security (CFS) and unanimously adopted by all member states of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) in 2004.
Both the Agroecology Symposium and the BioDiversity Dialogue developed initiatives and next steps for action by FAO, member states, the RBAs and other stakeholders.

Until young people are brought to the table, their investment in the future of agriculture is not being fully actualized. From October 15-19, I had the honour of attending the 45th session of the United Nations Committee on World Food Security (CFS 45). During CFS week, I represented 4-H Canada as part of the Private Sector Mechanism's (PSM) youth delegation. The event took place at the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) headquarters in Rome, Italy.
