WBCSD is convening this collective action platform for business to provide knowledge, tools, guidance and to address priority risks exacerbated by COVID-19 and ensure that learnings from the crisis help to minimise disruptions and system vulnerabilities in the future. The project aims to support companies to navigate immediate challenges with the goal of long- term system resilience and global food system security going forward.
The main objectives are to:
Advocate for improved collective action, through the voice of business, for more sustainable responses during the COVID-19 crisis that lead to resilient and sustainable food systems
Support business to respond rapidly and sustainably to priority food supply chain challenges and to ensure continued global food security by sharing knowledge to mitigate risks collectively
- Enhance food system recovery pathways through a strategic assessment to mitigate risks and weaknesses in a post-COVID-19 world
WBCSD is collaborating with the World Economic Forum's Food System Initiative and Consumer Industry Action Group, to ensure the relevant cross-platform linkages across efforts.
