The mission of the GSO is to facilitate dialogue and disseminate information on social issues in order to encourage stakeholders to engage in a broadened search for solutions and policy coherence. This service is based on a participatory process that brings all interested parties together in a neutral space to identify solutions and policies that are coherent. These solutions can then contribute to policy-making at the governmental and intergovernmental levels. Read more about the GSO here.
Announcement for a Consultation Process on Conflict of Interest in the
Scaling Up Nutrition Movement
The GSO has received a grant to implement a consultation process on Conflict of Interest issues associated with the Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) Movement, a program founded and promoted on the principles that all people have a right to food and good nutrition. The GSO project addressing Conflict of Interest is being undertaken from April 2013 to February 2015. See more information here.
This follows on a successful series of interactive events in 2012 on the prevention, control and care of non-communicable diseases. The GSO hosted a 2012 Colloquium Series on Non-Communicable Diseases to enhance understanding on a collaborative multi-stakeholder and multi-sectoral approach to prevention, treatment, control and care of NCDs. The Series consisted of five Colloquium Events throughout the year and culminated in the development of a framework for a plan of action on multi-stakeholder and multi-sectoral collaboration on NCDs. Please read the overview report on “Lessons Learned” here. Additional background on the Colloquium Series is available here.
The GSO looks forward to new opportunities to deliver a safe, neutral space for multi-stakeholder dialogues. All are welcome to apply for GSO membership here to receive regular notices of our forthcoming events.
