The 2020 Global Nutrition Report: Action on equity to end malnutrition called on governments, business and civil society to step up efforts to address injustices in food and health systems for an end to malnutrition in all its forms.
The 3rd Global Conference of the Sustainable Food Systems Programme will provide space to discuss how to achieve food system transformation through inclusive multi-stakeholder collaboration. It also aims to provide substantial input into the UN Food Systems Summit that is tentatively scheduled for the third quarter of 2021.
The expected outcomes of the conference are:
- science-based recommendations on the range of actions that can advance food systems transformation within the priority areas identified in the outcome of the 2nd Global Conference, in contribution to the Action Tracks of the Food Systems Summit 2021
- recommendations that can help define the implementation mechanisms (including accountability mechanisms) for such recommended actions.
