Public Information Meeting on Establishing Global Food Safety Multi Donor Trust Fund

Date: September 7, 2011
Location: Washington, DC

Addressing capacity building on food safety is now recognized as an essential component of efforts to achieve greater food security. It is in this context that the World Bank recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on Food Safety Capacity Building with the APEC Food Safety Cooperation Forum (FSCF) and its Partnership Training Institute Network (PTIN), that provides an innovative and sustainable platform on which to improve food safety capacity. Looking to the future, a Global Food Safety Multi Donor trust fund will be established to build on the measured successes gained in the APEC region, which is ethnically and economically diverse, to inform food safety capacity building programs globally.

To implement the vision encompassed in the MOU, the World Bank is establishing this multi-donor trust fund for food safety capacity building, through a process of collaboration with a range of public and private sector partners. To this end, the World Bank held an information meeting on September 7, 2011 at World Bank headquarters in Washington, DC to capture relevant views of key stakeholders; provide information; and encourage potential participation in this initiative.
