The UNFSS is organized in the context of the United Nations Decade of Action to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030.The Summit will focus the discussions on game-changing solutions to transform food systems across the globe in order to achieve all the 17 SDGs of Agenda 2030. In the African context, food systems transformation will help the continent to achieve the 20 goals of Africa’s Agenda 2063 and the CAADP Malabo goals and targets.

ONGOING

PAST

  • On 18 June, we hosted an independent UNFSS dialogue, jointly with OECD, CGIAR and the government of the Netherlands on “Science for Food Systems Policy: an emerging agenda”; the event was invite-only and saw participation of 93 experts who are directly involved in the UNFSS process, including all 5 AT chairs/leads. Continued collaboration around this and follow-up events are envisaged by all partners.


  • Power for All, GACSA, Rockefeller Foundation and the MaMo Panel hosted another independent dialogue in April on Scaling a Clean Energy Food Systems Transformation, which again saw the participation of over 200 people.
