To end poverty and hunger globally and meet the targets of the SDGs, we must build agency for the approximately 4.5 billion people that depend on food systems for their livelihoods.
The CFS49 side event on "How can data & digital technology support smallholder farmers and enable more equitable, inclusive and sustainable food systems?" is set to take place October 14 from 12:45-14:15 CEST.
Our food system needs to nourish people while providing resilient, decent livelihoods, and respecting human rights. With pressure on food affordability, now more than ever we need innovation, greater empowerment of women and youth, and resilience for all aspects of the food system from crops to livestock, vegetables to fish, local to global trade. At a time when hunger is rising, there could be no more urgent moment for the Food Systems Summit.
Join us, September 29, 2021 at 10-11:30 CEST – 15-16:30 ICT for an outreach event in collaboration with the CFS Secretariat: Business Training Session on the CFS Voluntary Guidelines on Food Systems and Nutrition.
