The ongoing COVID-19 health crisis is further exposing the vulnerabilities in food systems, highlighting the insecurity of rural livelihoods, the tragedy of food loss and waste, and stark inequities in access to healthy food.

The UN Food Systems Summit (FSS) in Fall 2021 presents a unique opportunity to bring together all stakeholders from across and related to the food value chains to address these challenges and unlock barriers to food systems transformation.

By working collectively to define “what” a positive food future looks like and “how” to achieve it, we can ensure that the UN Food Systems Summit 2021 signals a ‘turning point in history’ and helps catalyze the partnerships, policy changes, financial solutions, and innovations that will create long-lasting impact at grassroots and global level.

To accelerate the agenda, the virtual pre-event Bold Action for Food as Force for Good meeting will mobilize multistakeholder action in pursuit of this future. The event has three aims:

  • To agree on an initial set of bold actions and science-based principles to change the food system, to be adopted between now and the UN Food Systems Summit 2021
  • To identify a set of scalable, ‘game changer’ initiatives to achieve a sustainable food system, and to agree on the partnerships, funding and innovation hubs needed to implement these and accelerate their global scale-up in the run-up to the UN Food Systems Summit 2021
  • To create a global network of leaders at all levels to drive transformative change for sustainable food systems and involve the next generation

This joint-partner organized event is co-led by the World Economic Forum, Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), World Farmers Organization, World Business Council for Sustainable Development, Unilever, PepsiCo, Royal DSM, Rabobank, One Young World, Tufts University's Friedman School of Nutrition Science & Policy, Wageningen University & Research, and the Government of The Netherlands.

Tune into the event taking place virtually on 23-24 November 2020.
