Key messages for the global development process are outlined in the multimedia Conference Report from Hunger – Nutrition – Climate Justice.
Hunger – Nutrition – Climate Justice (HNCJ) was a conference with a difference. Held in April 2013, the Conference explored the links between climate change, hunger and poor nutrition, and their impact on the world’s most vulnerable people.
Of the 300-plus delegates from 60 countries at Hunger – Nutrition – Climate Justice, 100 were representatives of grassroots communities. They told their stories, and high-level policy makers listened and learned, while informing them of the processes in train for the next steps in global development.
Hunger – Nutrition – Climate Justice was co-hosted by the Government of Ireland and the Mary Robinson Foundation – Climate Justice, with organising partners the World Food Programme (WFP ) and the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS).
In the Conference Report, the organising partners of Hunger – Nutrition – Climate Justice use a range of multimedia – from videos to weblinks and tweets – to provide a snapshot of the events and discussions that took place during the two-day event.
The report also outlines the Conference’s highlights, its objectives and achievements, the commitments made by representatives of government, policy, business and civil society there, the lessons learned from organising such a unique event and the key messages that came out of vibrant and respectful dialogue between grassroots community representatives and the people whose global policy decisions affect their lives.
