Food Security and Hunger in the Post-2015 Development Agenda

On June 24th, the Czech NGOs Glopolis and People in Need, together with the United Nations Information Centre in Prague organized the international seminar „Food Security and Hunger in the Post-2015 Development Agenda with Focus on Responsible Agricultural Investment“ aiming at presenting current debates about how to ensure that food security issues remain high in the Post-2015 Development Agenda.

These debates cover up many sectors - economic, social, environmental as well as political. Focus was put on lessons to be learned, improvements which should be reflected while preparing new goals and responsible investment principles which need to be adopted to ensure coherence in development and economic policies. Prominent Czech and foreign speakers were invited to present their views, among others: Connell Foley (Concern Worldwide), Jesper Karlsson (FAO) and Jean Blaylock (UK Food Group).
