This is a United Nation's Commission for Social Development Online Side event. Please share this article within your network or distribute this event flyer.

Wednesday February 9th 2022, 8:30-9:45 am EST

The purpose of this side event, organized by the International Council on Social Welfare (ICSW) in cooperation with several international partners is to explore the pre-requisites and core activities necessary to ensure that all individuals and communities, including the most disadvantaged, are food-secure and have access to healthy nutrition. Sustainable pov- erty eradication cannot be achieved without addressing the threats to food and nutrition security and implementing a well-focused set of mutually reinforcing social and economic policies attuned to the national circumstances and implemented in an integrated manner.

The speakers will address the existing challenges, as well as good practices that contribute to shaping the most appropriate models of reaching nutritionally vulnerable social groups.
