FAO World Summit on Food Security

The FAO World Summit on Food Security will discuss putting into place a more coherent and effective system of food security, including rules and mechanisms to ensure adequate incomes for farmers, mobilizing investments into agricultural infrastructure and access to inputs, and a mechanism for early reaction to food crises. The Summit agenda will also include roundtables on: financial and economic crisis and food security; global governance of food security; agriculture and the Copenhagen conference on climate change; support measures for farmers; and an early reaction fund for food security.
