The draft text for the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security was submitted for final approval by the Committee on World Food Security (CFS) this past week. While the guidelines will not be binding, Yayi Olaniran, the chair of the CFS, said the inclusive process used to develop the guidelines will help to ensure “they will set the bar for policy makers.”

The full text of the draft guidelines will be available at the website of the CFS Secretariat here soon. Read more about the guidelines here.
