The UN Food Systems Summit will serve as a historic opportunity to empower all people to leverage the power of food systems to drive our recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and get the international development sector back on track to achieve all 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030.
Over the past 18 months, the Summit has brought together all UN Member States and constituencies around the world — including thousands of youth, food producers, Indigenous Peoples, civil society, researchers, the private sector and the UN system — to bring about tangible, positive changes to the world’s food systems. As a people’s summit and a solutions summit, it has recognized that everyone, everywhere must take action and work together to transform the way the world produces, consumes and thinks about food.
The UN Food Systems Summit will culminate this inclusive global process, offering a catalytic moment for public mobilization and actionable commitments by heads of state and government and other constituency leaders to take this agenda forward.
The event will be held virtually during the UN General Assembly in New York. More information about the 2021 UN Food Systems Summit and list of Advisory Committee and Scientific Group members can be found on the Summit's website.
