The PSM comments on the CFS Forum on Women's Empowerment in the Context of Food Security and Nutrition are available online here

The PSM welcomes the summary and outcomes of the forum, and considers women’s empowerment to be an essential component of policies and programmes aiming to improve food security and nutritional outcomes. We are therefore extremely pleased to see the increased attention this issue has garnered in the context of the CFS, and fully support the emphasis placed in the outcomes on the importance of mainstreaming gender equality, women’s and girls’ rights, and women’s empowerment in all CFS workstreams, products, and documents, particularly given the importance afforded to this throughout the Agenda 2030, both as a stand alone goal (SDG5), and as a common thread throughout the SDGs as a whole.
