Rethinking Food Systems


The world was already battling with hunger and malnutrition before 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in millions more people being pushed towards poverty and hunger this year. This is a wakeup call to rethink food systems for the future. Resilience must be a key element to protect smallholder producers, poor consumers and other vulnerable populations. Investing in smallholders and social protection, partnership with the private sector, and engaging with emerging economies will be essential in building resilient food systems to tackle future challenges in climate change and depletion of natural resources, hunger and malnutrition.

This session will be available in English and Spanish.
