Within the scope of the discussion on responsible private sector involvement it was recognised that private investments can play an important role in improving food security, provided that they are aimed at improving income and employment levels in the local population, increasing food production and improving access to food.
To promote food security, the cooperation between the private sector, governments, the local population and civil society should be strengthened.
4. Nutrition aspects should be integrated into strategies against hunger
The proposal to better integrate the subject of nutrition – i.e. a healthy diet idea adapted to people's needs – into future food security strategies was unanimously supported. This requires, among other things, the development of uniform standards and indicators that are also linked to human rights and gender aspects and take account of the necessity to consider food security, care and health together. In addition to this, the CFS and the UN Standing Committee on Nutrition (SCN) should cooperate closely, and strengthening the SCN could also be of great benefit.
