Achieving Food Security requires integrated policy making across multiple policy areas. The 2030 Agenda recommends this be done by promoting policy coherence for sustainable development (PCSD – SD17:14). This session draws on the extensive experience of the Committee on World Food Security (CFS) as well as on research done by ECDPM to illustrate the importance of promoting policy coherence and lessons learnt on
how this can be done.

Moderation: H.E Annika Lindblom, Secretary-General of the Finnish National Commission on Sustainable Development
