Registrations Open For FAO Stakeholder Consultation on Climate Change

FAO: Announces Stakeholder Consultation, 15-16 February

From 15-16 February 2008, FAO will host a civil society stakeholder consultation as part of the preparatory process for the High Level Conference on World Food Security and the Challenges of Climate Change and Bioenergy to be held in Rome, 3-5 June 2008. The consultation will also be held in Rome.

This will be a unique opportunity for civil society to voice its views on the complex relationships and strategic choices needed to keep food available and accessible given the diverse impacts of climate change and bioenergy.

The consultation will be an opportunity for civil society to influence the preparatory discussions held during the expert meetings in February and March, as well as other preparations for the conference.

You will note that the registration on the website is open. We will review the requests to guarantee a fair balance of regions, constituencies and types of organizations.

The general conference website is here.
