Each year, during the weeklong Plenary session of the Committee on World Food Security (CFS46), attendees have the opportunity to host side events on key topics of relevance to CFS' mandate. In previous years, members of the Private Sector Mechanism have hosted side events on topics ranging from Agroecology to Women's Empowerment. We consistently see a good turnout of a range of CFS stakeholders at these events, which serve as an excellent chance for members of the private sector to share directly about their work.
- Your name and organization
- The topic or idea you are interested in presenting on, as well as a few bullet points on why you think this topic is relevant to CFS and what your unique perspective is
- Whether you are interested in being a side event organizer or simply being considered as a panelist
- Any questions or clarifications you may have
You can also submit your ideas via the CFS46 Side Event Expression of Interest Survey and Side Event Request Form, available here: http://www.fao.org/cfs/cfs46. The deadline for submitting the Side Event Request Form will be 26 June, 2019.
