The EESC strongly believe that ensuring food security is not just about producing more food. Supplying diverse, nutritious and good quality foods, supporting smallholder farmers, sustaining soil and water resources and reducing food waste are objectives that should also be pursued.

The EESC aims to promote civil society's role in food security, for example through its opinions, its cooperation with the FAO, participating as observer in the UN Committee on World Food Security (CFS) or through UN International Year events.

For us in the wealthy Europe it is a day to reflect and to consider what we can do to contribute to a change.

Häiriö- ja kriisialttiita sektoreita ovat perinteisesti esim. tietoliikenneyhteydet, lentoliikenne ja merikuljetukset. ..."
