Food Systems Initiative


By 2050, a global population of 9.8 billion will demand 70% more food than is consumed today. Feeding this expanded population nutritiously and sustainably will require substantial improvements to the global food system – one that provides livelihoods for farmers as well as nutritious products for consumers.

The mission of the World Economic Forum’s System Initiative on Shaping the Future of Food is to build inclusive, sustainable, efficient, and nutritious food systems through leadership-driven, market-based action and collaboration, informed by insights and innovation, in alignment with the Sustainable Development Goals.

The System Initiative on Shaping the Future of Food aims to:

Strengthen global food systems by developing new insights; facilitating collaboration on priority action areas, including leveraging technology and innovation for food systems change; and mobilizing leadership and expertise at the global level.

Supporting regional and country platforms by achieving the New Vision for Agriculture through the Food Action Alliance - strengthening multistakeholder collaboration at the country and regional level, and by mobilizing new investments, partnerships, and best practices to achieve concrete results.

Harness the power of technological innovations to transform the food system through Innovation with a Purpose, as a large-scale partnership aggregator and project accelerator.
