Centre for Food Policy’s forthcoming Food Thinkers seminar in London:
With guest speaker Professor Renato Maluf,
from the Federal Rural University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and Visiting Professor, Centre for Food Policy.
Taking place on Tuesday 27 June 2017, 4.30pm – 6pm, A130 College Building, City, University of London.
This Food Thinkers will be an opportunity to learn from the Brazilian experience of building a National Plan for Food and Nutrition Security, focusing on its intersectoral approach.
Professor Renato Maluf (CPDA/UFRRJ), former President of the National Council on Food and Nutrition Security (CONSEA) in Brazil, will describe how the intersectoral and participatory approach to food and nutrition security in Brazil was built. He will focus on the processes that enhanced civil society participation (through CONSEA) and intergovernmental working (through the Inter-Ministerial Chamber for Food and Nutrition, CAISAN), the challenges of political coherence, and provide insights into the guidelines orienting the national plan and the performance of its main programmes. He will assess the current situation in the context of the dramatic political changes in Brazil in 2016 and provide learnings for the UK context. The discussion will then be opened to the audience for Q&A.
