IOFS Call for Better Coordination on Food Security Matters at the 6th Annual Coordination Meeting of OIC Institutions (ACMOI)

14 December 2022

Upon instructions of His Excellency Mr. Yerlan Baidaulet, Director General of the Islamic Organization for Food Security (IOFS), Mr. Abdula Manafi Mutualo, IOFS Senior Liaison Officer, attended the first day of the 6th Annual Coordination Meeting of OIC Institutions (ACMOI), being held at the General Secretariat of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) until 15 December 2022.

The IOFS representative participated more at the Economic Affairs Committee, where he called for better coordination among all Institutions towards avoiding duplication of work to effectively spend the scarce financial resources for implementation of appropriate programmes in the field of food security and agricultural development.

Mr. Manafi had therefore the chance to exchange views on potential joint activities in 2023 with other relevant Institutions active in the same field, including the Statistical, Economic and Social Research and Training Centre for Islamic Countries (SESRIC), the Islamic Centre for Development of Trade (ICDT), Islamic Development Bank (IsDB), the Islamic Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture (ICCIA), the Standards and Metrology Institute for Islamic Countries (SMIIC), and the Standing Committee for Economic and Commercial Cooperation of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (COMCEC).

In this context, the ACMOI Matrix 2023, to be approved in the last day of the Meeting, is to feature IOFS proposals based on the five pillars of the IOFS 2031 Strategic Vision geared to addressing the challenges of food insecurity faced by some Member States.
