In 2021, UN Secretary-General António Guterres will convene a Food Systems Summit as part of the Decade of Action to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. The Summit will launch bold new actions to deliver progress on all 17 SDGs, each of which relies to some degree on healthier, more sustainable, equitable and resilient food systems. Guided by five Action Tracks, the Summit will bring together key stakeholders from the worlds of science, business, policy, healthcare, government, and academia, as well as farmers, indigenous people, youth organizations, consumer groups, environmental activists, and other key stakeholders. Before, during and after the Summit, these actors will come together to bring about tangible, positive changes to the world’s food systems. https://www.un.org/en/food-systems-summit/about


The Private Sector Mechanism of the UN Committee on World Food Security welcomes the Summit and the dialogue to advance the future of our food systems. Agriculture and food have faced multiple challenges, particularly in the past year, and it is clear that there is a strong need for a more resilient food system that advances livelihoods, nutrition, health, diversity, and the environment. The Private Sector is an important partner in this process and business is keen to engage and advance work on the future of our food systems.
