In the morning, plenary held a special event titled “From Agreement to Action towards Implementing the 2030 Agenda: Learning from the First Volunteer National Reviews,” aiming to share early efforts to address food security and nutrition in the context of the 2030 Agenda at the country level.

Moderator David Nabarro, Special Adviser of the UN Secretary General on the 2030 Agenda, noted the event will discuss successes, challenges and opportunities from implementing the 2030 Agenda. Panels addressed: leveraging existing institutions and legal frameworks for the SDGs; integrating the three dimensions of sustainable development and the SDGs with national priorities for food security and nutrition and sustainable agriculture; and creating ownership of the 2030 Agenda for the people, through all levels of collaboration.

In the afternoon, plenary heard a progress report on the evaluation of CFS’ effectiveness and adopted the meeting report. CFS Secretary Fulton announced that CFS 44 will be held from 9-13 October 2017, in Rome.

Chair Gornass closed the meeting at 4:04 pm.
