Dear Ms, Sir,
The High Level Panel of Experts (HLPE) on food security and nutrition has been created as part of the reform of the international governance of food security to advise the UN Committee on World Food Security (CFS) which is the foremost intergovernmental and international platform dealing with food security and nutrition.
The HLPE is now calling for motivated high level experts to form a Project Team to write, according to the HLPE Rules and procedures, its draft report on
Climate change and food security
(see http://www.fao.org/cfs/cfs-hlpe/next-steps for the mandates given by the CFS)
The Project Team will be appointed by the Steering Committee and work from October 2011 until June 2012, under the Oversight of the Steering Committee of the HLPE.
The report of the HLPE, requested by the Committee on World Food Security (CFS), will be sent to the CFS end June 2012, and presented at CFS Plenary by October 2012.
As in other expert panels (IPCC, IAASTD), reimbursement of previously agreed support expenses, such as internal meetings of the HLPE, will be provided.
To apply, please download the form available at www.fao.org/cfs/cfs-hlpe and send it back by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org before 16 September 2011.
More information on the HLPE and the CFS is found online at www.fao.org/cfs/cfs-hlpe.
