Food Security

In 2021, the UN Secretary General will convene the Food System Summit as part of the Decade of Action to achieve the SDGs by 2030. The Summit includes five Action Tracks on Nutrition, Sustainable Consumption, Nature Positive Production, Livelihoods and Resilience.

Action Tracks

  • Ensure access to safe and nutritious food for all
  • Shift to sustainable consumption patterns
  • Boost nature-positive production
  • Advance equitable livelihoods
  • Build resilience to vulnerabilities, shocks and stress

The action tracks are complimented by levers for change to offer cross-cutting and transformative impact from enabling agendas such as youth and gender empowerment, finance, human rights, and innovation.

The Public Forum will aim to engage a wide network of diverse voices from public, private, civil society, farmer and consumer, innovator communities, experts and others. We would welcome the opportunity to exchange ideas on the role of Innovation as an enabler for scale, and pace of addressing food systems transformation. We welcome ideas, views, feedback and input from interested stakeholders to shape the innovation agenda in support of the UN Food Systems Summit.

Tune in to watch this livestream February 10th, 2021 at 14:30-15:30 CET.
