The ad-hoc Steering Committee of the CSOs is pleased to invite you to the preparation workshops to the CSO Consultation prior to the FAO 32nd Regional Conference for Europe and Central Asia (ERC)‘
The workshops are developed in order to increase the voices from CSOs in our diverse Region. The issues which will be discussed at the workshops are going to be the main agenda items at the CSO Consultation on 21, 22 and 23 October. As virtual spaces create a big limitation for the participants to express themselves in a limited time frame, Steering Committee of the Consultation wanted to give more opportunity for the CSOs to speak and share their organisations’ point of views and also experiences on the agenda points.

- Sustainable Food Systems and Healthy Diets – Speakers: Isa Alvarez and Ramona Duminicioiu
