South-North Dialogue to Address Food Security and Energy Security

June 2008: This event will take place in

Geneva, Switzerland, on 17 June 2008, and is organized by the South Centre,

together with the Permanent Mission of the Republic of Indonesia to the UN and

other Geneva-based international organizations. The Dialogue will seek to raise

awareness of underlying causes and policy dilemmas related to energy, food and

livelihood security.

The event aims to provide a platform to discuss challenges faced by

developing countries in relation to the global food crisis and examine possible

policy/multilateral solutions, and strengthen developing countries'

participation in fora where this issue is being discussed. The discussion held

during the event will be reflected in a publication, which will be distributed

in Geneva and forwarded to G77 delegations in New York for future discussions

related to the food crisis. [Meeting
