AGENCY FOR INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT Notice of Meeting; Board for International Food and Agricultural Development Agency for International Development. ACTION: Notice of meeting; request for public comment. AGENCY: Pursuant to the Federal Advisory Committee Act, notice is hereby given of a public meeting of the Board for International Food and Agricultural Development (BIFAD), Fed to Thrive: Accelerating Action on Nourishing Foods for Infants and Young Children. The public meeting is a side event of the 2022 Borlaug Dialogue at the World Food Prize under the theme ‘‘Feeding a Fragile World’’. The meeting will convene expert presenters and seek public input on evidence-based solutions for increasing the affordability, availability, and convenience of nutrient-dense foods for infants and children under two years of age, providing adequate safety nets for families most vulnerable to early childhood malnutrition. DATES: The meeting will be on October 19, 2022 from 7 a.m. to 8:45 a.m. Central Time. ADDRESSES: The meeting will be held at the Iowa Event Center, 730 3rd Street, Des Moines, Iowa 50309. Members of the public are invited to join in person at the venue (room details will be shared after registration). The link to register to attend in person at the Iowa Event Center is: https://bit.ly/3UfEJTi. The meeting will also be live streamed via ZOOM for virtual public participation.

Although 9.2 percent of the global population lives below the international poverty line of $1.90 per day, the average least-cost, nutrient-adequate diet for one child in a low-income country is $1–2 per day at 6 to 8 months, $1 per day at 9 to 11 months, and above $1 per day at one year and older. Simply put, families are struggling to afford safe and nutritious food for their young children, with devastating, irreversible consequences for child survival and cognitive and physical growth. Sub-country-level data indicate that early childhood malnutrition does not impact all families, socio-economic groups, communities, or regions equally, with measurable inequalities experienced by the poor in access and consumption of important sources of nutrition— including animal-source foods and nutrient-dense vegetables—during complementary-feeding stages. Presentations and discussion will focus on the questions: (1) What does a nutritionally balanced food basket for infants and young children look like, and what would it cost? (2) What are evidence-based priority actions to reduce the costs of balanced food baskets, improve nutrient content and safety, incentivize use by improving convenience and enabling caregivers, and provide financial means for the most vulnerable to access them through safety nets? (3) How do we achieve coordinated, gender-transformative change across the food, health, and social protection systems in both development and humanitarian settings? Drawing from testimony by global experts and practitioners, BIFAD will advise the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) on recommended policy and program actions. The meeting will include a public comment period from 8:25 to 8:40 a.m. Central Time. The BIFAD is a seven-member, presidentially appointed advisory board to USAID established in 1975 under Title XII of the Foreign Assistance Act, as amended, to ensure that USAID brings the assets of U.S. universities to bear on development challenges in agriculture and food security and supports their representation in USAID programming.

Type of Request: Intent to Seek Approval to Revise and Extend an Information Collection for 3 years. Abstract: The primary objective of the National Agricultural Statistics Service is to prepare and issue State and national estimates of crop and livestock production, prices, and disposition. The Field Crops Production Program consists of probability field crops surveys and supplemental panel surveys. The panel surveys capture unique crop characteristics such as the concentration of crops in localized geographical areas. These surveys are extremely valuable for commodities where acreage and yield are published at the county level. Overall, there is a decrease in burden for this renewal. Accounting for the proposed mailings for the surveys in this renewal will increase burden for samples selected for the above surveys, but the decrease in burden resulting from the reduced sample sizes for both County Agricultural Production Survey (CAPS) and Cash Rents survey to publish cash rents at a county level exceeded the burden increase for the proposed number of mailings. The decrease in both sample sizes is due to updated criteria required to summarized statistics at the county level that were discussed at the 2020 USDA Fall Data Users’ Meeting question and answer session. The transcript of the session can be found at this link: https:// www.nass.usda.gov/Education_and_ Outreach/Meeting/2020/2020-Fall-DataUsers-Meeting-Question-andAnswer.pdf. Authority: These data will be collected under the authority of 7 U.S.C. 2204(a). Individually identifiable data collected under this authority are VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:32 Sep 21, 2022 Jkt 256001 governed by Section 1770 of the Food Security Act of 1985 as amended, 7 U.S.C. 2276, which requires USDA to afford strict confidentiality to nonaggregated data provided by respondents. This Notice is submitted in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, Public Law 104– 13 (44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.) and Office of Management and Budget regulations at 5 CFR part 1320.

Ch. 35. CIPSEA supports NASS’s pledge of confidentiality to all respondents and facilitates the agency’s efforts to reduce burden by supporting statistical activities of collaborative agencies through designation of NASS agents, subject to the limitations and penalties described in CIPSEA. Estimate of Burden: Public reporting burden for this information collection is based on a group of similar surveys with expected response times of 5–30 minutes and a frequency of 1–40 times per year. Estimated number of responses per respondent is 1.25. Respondents: Farmers and Ranchers. Estimated Total Number of Respondents: 444,500. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 142,500 hours. Comments: Comments are invited on: (a) whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, technological or other forms of information technology collection methods.
