CYINDEP envisions the post-2015 framework to be a global framework with global goals and nationally adapted targets according to the common-but-differentiated principle in order to ensure higher legitimacy, ownership and commitment of every stakeholder involved.The symposium will focus specifically on the food security – nutrition dimension of a potential future goal related to human development. It will analyse in detail six key issues related to food security, namely:
