On the 26 and 27 of March 2020, the Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) of Latin American and the Caribbean are going to hold in Panama, their biennial Regional Consultation.

The CSOs Regional Consultation for LAC is organized by the Alianza por la Soberanía Alimentaria de los pueblos de América Latina y el Caribe, the Latin-American network of the IPC.
The outcomes of the Regional Consultation are going to be brought to the attention of the FAO during the 36th session of the FAO Regional Conference for Latin American and the Caribbean by a delegation of CSOs representatives.
