Watch: Agri-business community at the UN Committee on World Food Security
February 4, 2015 – The UN Committee on World Food Security (CFS) has published a promotional video featuring seven leaders from the food and farming business community alongside governments, UN officials and civil society representatives.
The aim of the video is to bring to light the work undertaken by the CFS, the United Nations’ forum for reviewing policies concerning world food security. Importantly, agri-businesses have a ‘seat at the table’ in this forum through what is known as the Private Sector Mechanism, allowing their voices to be heard on an equal footing with those of governments, political decision makers and civil society.
In order of appearance, the private sector representatives on the video are:
Jan Dyer, Canadian Canola Growers’ Association
Mike Michener, CropLife International
Nico Van Belzen, International Dairy Federation
Natalia Federighi, Yara International
Charles Ogang, Uganda National Farmers Federation
Barrie Bain, Informa
Robynne Anderson, IAFN
