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. 

This year, the CFS Secretariat has requested that preliminary side event ideas be submitted before the formal submission process opens later in the year. If you are even tentatively interested in hosting or participating in a side event at CFS46 (October 14-18 at FAO headquarters in Rome, Italy), we encourage you to submit your ideas to PSM by getting in touch with This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Please include in your message the following details: 

  • 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

For more ideas on what PSM side events in the past have focused on, please consult the CFS45 Side Event Reports
