Development policy and food security

The International Affairs unit coordinates development policy and food security issues at the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry. In 2015, current issues include the intergovernmental negotiations on global development goals for the period after the year 2015 (Post 2015). In Finland, matters concerning the negotiations are coordinated by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs.

A food security pilot was carried out as part of the implementation of Finland’s Development Policy Programme. The final report on the project was published in 2013. The work was coordinated by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs.
