Panel discussion on the struggle for the right to food and nutrition people’s monitoring beyond the SDGs was held in the Palais De Nations at the room xxv on 1st of March 2018 in Geneva. NAFSO, CSR and Law and Society Trust made three presentations in relation to the engagement of international monitoring mechanism through CEDAW, ESCR and UPR process. Representatives from NAFSO, CSR and LST were invited to share the experiences in order to submit the particular reports. We shared our experience in organizing civil society organizations to involve in the monitoring process in the national and international level. We were able to highlight most important elements to ensure meaningful participation in the process.
The discussion focused on the importance of the CFS in furthering of the Right to Food, and new space for accountability /policy coherence – emphasizing that. We recognized the value of the Geneva institutions (treaty bodies, UPR, Rapporteurs) and that is the benefit of CFS when engage with Geneva process. It is important to build a collaboration and coordination with the international technical agencies that can support for the implementation of the Right to Food in national level.
