WEBINAR: Catalysing the Sustainable and Inclusive Transformation of Food Systems

10 June 2021. Catalysing the Sustainable and Inclusive Transformation of Food Systems, From Assessment to Policy and Investment

Recording forthcoming

Since 2020, the EU, FAO and CIRAD have entered into a partnership with governments and stakeholders to initiate a large-scale assessment and consultation on food systems in more than 50 countries.

The webinar illustrated the Food System Assessment (FSA) exercise that INTPA, FAO and CIRAD are currently undergoing with EU Delegations and partners’ countries. As we move closer to the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of a better future for all, a concerted effort is needed to rethink our food systems. They are critical to achieving all SDGs. However, the solutions are complex. Each regional, national and even sub- national food system has its own specificities and set of hurdles, which means that a solution for one may not apply to all, but stakeholders can learn from each other’s way of improving the system.

Participants explored the support that the Food System Assessment (FSA) provides, in support to programming and policy dialogue for the transition to more sustainable food systems, as well as for the identification of innovative policy and investment solution at the appropriate level.
