How to develop Terms of References for Environmental and Social Impact Assessment and Management Plan


A substantial number of people participating in food production—including agricultural workers and smallholder farmers—face poverty and food insecurity[1][2]. The expansion and development of cultivated land may present risks for those participating in food production, such as forced displacement, reduced or denied access to land and natural resources, water scarcity and environmental and health consequences [3][4][5]. These risks could both directly and indirectly deprive even more farmers and local communities of accessing adequate food.

The Food Security Standard (FSS) takes into account the Right to adequate Food in agricultural production. Applying the FSS in sustainability certification systems ensures that farmers, workers, and neighbouring communities are food secure.

Welthungerhilfe is one of the largest private aid organisations in Germany, independent of politics and religion. It was established in 1962, as the German section of the “Freedom from Hunger Campaign”.

Meo Carbon Solutions is an independent consulting company with a focus on sustainable development solutions, smallholder empowerment and social compliance, sustainability certification and carbon footprint improvement. Meo is working on a global scale and supporting the application of the FSS.
