Humankind is confronted with multiple deeply rooted and interlinked crises, including in relation to climate, biodiversity, conflict, energy, consumer prices, food insecurity, malnutrition, and health. Global food systems challenges call for a profound and swift transformation of how we produce, process, retail, and consume food and dispose of organic waste.
The 4th Global Conference of the One Planet Network's Sustainable Food Systems Programme will contribute to the 2023 Stocktaking Moment of the UN Food Systems Summit follow-up process, by focusing on how food systems need to be transformed to overcome the multiple deeply rooted and interlinked crises of climate, biodiversity, conflict, energy, prices, hunger, malnutrition, and health to achieve the SDGs.
The objectives of the 4th global conference are:
-To present transformational actions, tools, and initiatives that have emerged since the UNFSS with a view to promoting their uptake and upscaling in national and local policy-making processes.
-To further promote the food systems approach and inclusive governance and collaboration at all levels – including multilateral and particularly Rio Conventions –with a view to foster their uptake for the development of multi-sectoral action plans towards sustainable consumption and production in food systems; and
-To provide a space for National Convenors, UN FSS coalitions, and other relevant multi-actor initiatives as well as other food systems actors such as youth, civil society, and farmer organizations, to build capacities and deepen their collective efforts towards sustainable food systems pathways, in view of the UN FSS 2023 Stocktaking Moment.
To do so, the conference will provide a space for countries, coalitions, the Food Systems Coordination Hub’s “ecosystem of support” and other food systems actors to present transformational actions, tools, and initiatives linked to the implementation of National Pathways for Food Systems Transformation that have emerged since the UNFSS and discuss how such actions can be further scaled up to ensure that we collectively attain our sustainable food systems pathways by 2030.
