Ministerial Meeting on Food Security and Climate Adaptation in Small Island Developing States

Italia Pavilion - EXPO Milano 2015, Milan, Italy


The proposed meeting will offer SIDS Ministers and Ambassadors the opportunity to explore the implications of the SAMOA Pathway as it relates to food security and nutrition and climate change adaptation. The ultimate objective is to enhance food security, health and wellbeing in SIDS.

Ministers and Ambassadors would have space to share experiences and present initial plans for national and regional level implementation, and to articulate areas where further support and capacity development is needed. Perspectives from leading experts in the field of food security and from representatives of Rome-based UN entities, other relevant regional and global entities, the private sector and partner governments would be included as well. The concrete actions outlined in the SAMOA Pathway will provide a roadmap for the meeting.
