At its 42nd Plenary session in 2015, the Committee on World Food Security (CFS) decided to hold a global thematic event at the 43rd session in October 2016 to share experiences and take stock of the use and application of the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security (VGGT), as a contribution to monitoring progress towards VGGT implementation. This second global stocktake on the VGGT is informed by the contributions received from stakeholders.

The global thematic event will enable an interactive multistakeholder dialogue based on the experiences and good practices documented by stakeholders. The main objectives are the following:

  • Share and learn from one another’s experiences and good practices in applying the VGGT
  • Contribute to monitoring progress in implementing the VGGT at national, regional and global levels
  • Draw lessons to improve CFS monitoring of the VGGT

This document summarizes the key elements of the submissions received from stakeholders. It first provides a factual overview of the submissions and then outlines VGGT experiences within five complementary approaches, results obtained, key catalysts, constraints/challenges and key good practices that contributed to the success of the experiences.

The Committee on World Food Security (CFS) was set up in 1974 as an intergovernmental body to serve as a forum for review and follow up of food security policies. In 2009 the Committee went through a reform process to ensure that the voices of other stakeholders were heard in the global debate on food security and nutrition. The vision of the reformed CFS is to be the most inclusive international and intergovernmental platform for all stakeholders to work together in a coordinated way to ensure food security and nutrition for all.
