Transforming food systems for better nutrition, health, and prosperity
December 6, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Over the course of the past two years, and in the midst of an unprecedented pandemic, the UN Secretary-General’s Food Systems Summit (UNFSS) has engaged world leaders and thousands of people from around the world in an ambitious effort to accelerate actions towards more sustainable, equitable, and healthier food systems and realising the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
The UNFSS and Tokyo Nutrition for Growth (N4G) Summit (Dec 7-8, 2021) have been working collaboratively (see joint statement) to advance solutions across systems with a mutual recognition that malnutrition in all its forms is one of the biggest challenges we face to ensuring optimal health, resilience, and prosperity for all. To further highlight nutrition relevant moments, a “Nutrition for Growth Year of Action” was launched in December 2020.
On the eve of the N4G Summit the UNFSS Secretariat is hosting Transforming food systems for better nutrition, health, and prosperity for all: A virtual event in support of the Tokyo Nutrition for Growth (N4G) Summit.
6 December 2021: 8:00 – 09:30am GMT | 11:00am-12:30pm EAT | 17:00 -18:30pm JST
This event will underscore the linkage between nutrition and food systems, and aims to heighten global awareness, momentum, and actions toward delivering on the promise of the UN Decade of Action on Nutrition (2016-2025) and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
Speakers include UNFSS Special Envoy Dr. Agnes Kalibata, Food Systems Champions, government representatives, and stakeholders who have been engaged in food systems and nutrition space.
