Accelerating progress on the SDGs through the implementation of the Global Action Programme (GAP) on Food Security and Nutrition in Small Island Developing States (SIDS) (HLPF 2019 Side Event)
15 Jul 2019 -  How to respond to the growing challenge of ensuring food security and nutrition in Small Island Developing States (SIDS) in a context of climate change, and how can we use food security, nutrition and sustainable food system development as a driving force for sustainable development in SIDS? Acting on these questions are critical if SIDS are to achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The proposed side-event will assess the state of food security and nutrition in SIDS regions (AIMS, Caribbean and Pacific), showcase how SIDS are tackling the food security and nutrition agenda with the support of partners and discuss how agriculture and food systems development can be used to improve food security and nutrition in SIDS in a context of climate change, promote the transformation towards more sustainable and resilient societies and as an accelerator for the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development as a whole; and to explain how the GAP is contributing to these ongoing efforts. The event will also call upon partners of SIDS – donors, international organizations, NGOs and Civil society organisations – to further support SIDS pursuit of food security and nutrition and the implementation of the GAP.
