Building More Resilient and Sustainable Food Systems for Improved Global Food Security and Nutrition

15 October 2020. World Food Prize Side Event | Building More Resilient and Sustainable Food Systems for Improved Global Food Security and Nutrition 

Recording of the webinar forthcoming

Co-hosted by FAO and the Alliance to End Hunger to learn about the actions needed to promote more resilient and sustainable food systems for improved global food security and nutrition.

Five years after the world committed to end hunger, food insecurity and all forms of malnutrition, we are significantly off track to achieve this objective by 2030. If we are to realize these targets before the end of this decade, we need to urgently build far more resilient and sustainable food systems to provide healthy, safe, affordable, sufficient and nutritious food for a rapidly growing planet. We must also ensure and improve soil health, as healthy soils are the basis for healthy food production. This shift will also enable us to better withstand and recover from shocks such as COVID-19, to conserve our finite natural resources and to more effectively mitigate the effects of a changing climate.
