VIRTUAL EVENT: 3rd Global Conference of the One Planet network’s Sustainable Food Systems Programme

25 November – 3 December 2020. 3rd Global Conference of the One Planet (10YFP) Sustainable Food Systems Programme

The purpose of this 3rd global conference is to provide substantial input to the UN Food Systems Summit that is tentatively scheduled for the third quarter of 2021, building on the achievements of the SFS Programme’s membership during the first five years of implementation as well as the outcomes of the Programme’s previous two global conferences.

Previous editions of the conference harnessed consensus on a range of priority areas for action. The 1st global conference in South Africa concluded with the Pretoria Resolution, while the 2nd global conference in Costa Rica finalized with the San José Call to Action.

Background:
The Sustainable Food Systems (SFS) Programme is part of the One Planet network, formed to implement the UN 10-Year Framework for Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production (10YFP). The 10YFP was adopted by Heads of State and Government in 2012 at the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20), with the aim to promote cooperation to accelerate the shift towards sustainable consumption and production (SCP). 
The SFS Programme: a vision of multi-stakeholder dialogue to accelerate the shift to sustainable food systems:
  • The One Planet network SFS Programme is a 5-year long inclusive dialogue among food system stakeholders that is based on their wide range of on-the-ground research, experiences, policies and initiatives. 
  • The SFS Programme currently has over 170 members worldwide, bringing together leading organizations from government, the UN system, civil society, the scientific community, and private sector
