VIRTUAL EVENT: Resetting the Food System from Farm to Fork:

1 December 2020. Resetting the Food System from Farm to Fork:

We must act now to address the impending global food emergency and avoid the worst impacts of the pandemic, while seizing upon the opportunity of resetting food systems. Over the next 20 years, food systems will need to nourish 10 billion people while also protecting precious natural resources for future generations. The spread of COVID-19 has demonstrated the fragility of global food systems, but it also offers opportunities to transform the way we produce, distribute and consume food.
