The IAFN has been elected to coordinate the Private Sector Mechanism (PSM) at the United Nations Committee on World Food Security (CFS) in Rome.

The Private Sector Mechanism is an open platform providing a permanent seat for private enterprises right across the agri-food value chain, from farmers, to input providers, cooperatives, processors, SMEs and food companies. The private sector and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, along with civil society and the research community, have permanent seats on the CFS Advisory Group alongside member countries of the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) of the United Nations.

We embrace the responsibility to coordinate the consultation to the wider private sector and we are seeking contributions from business and industry. More about our policy positions and contributions to CFS debates can be read here.
