Invitation to an open discussion on the political outcome document of the ICN2
The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO), in cooperation with IFAD, IFPRI, UNESCO, UNICEF, World Bank, WTO, WFP and the High Level Task Force on the Global Food Security Crisis (HLTF), are jointly organizing the Second International Conference on Nutrition (ICN2), a high-level conference at FAO Headquarters, Rome, from 19 to 21 November 2014. More information is available at: www.fao.org/ICN2.
Two documents are expected to come out of the ICN2 – a political outcome document and a framework of action for its implementation.
The zero draft of the political outcome document, prepared by the FAO and WHO Secretariats, will be further developed by a Joint Working Group (JWG) of regional representatives of FAO and WHO Members for adoption by the ICN2 in November.
Those interested are invited to provide comments on the zero draft of the political outcome document available in the six UN languages through this public online consultation. Deadline for comments is 21 March 2014.
