Dear Colleagues,

As some of you may know, I sit on a scientific committee (HLPE) (
 that advises
the Committee on World Food Security (CFS). The CFS is a UN body that works
across the UN Rome-based agencies and assists member states with food
security and nutrition policy. While not quite analogous, the HLPE is
somewhat akin to an IPCC for food security. We oversee the writing of
reports, and summarize scientific consensus, that informs CFS policy
recommendations. We are currently scoping out our next report on "Promoting
youth engagement and employment in agriculture and food systems." We are
taking public comments until *Jan 26* on the scope and draft outline of the
report (see link below). If you have relevant expertise, this is your
chance to weigh in on what issues should be considered in the report. Feel
free to share this note with colleagues.

Many thanks,



Dear Colleagues,

I am writing to inform you that the High Level Panel of Experts on Food
Security and Nutrition (HLPE), on the request of the Committee on World
Food Security, is preparing a report on “*Promoting youth engagement and
employment in agriculture and food systems

The HLPE also invites contributions on the scope of the report, as well as
inputs on relevant articles, publications and good practices. Inputs on the
scope of the report can be submitted in English, French and Spanish at the
