Emergency Nutrition Network (ENN), the Power of Nutrition (PoN), Standing Together for Nutrition (ST4N) and the Micronutrient Forum (MNF) cordially invite you to a parallel session at the pre-summit of the United Nations Food Systems Summit (UN FSS).
The Zero Hunger, Nourish the Future Pledge is an opportunity for companies, investment funds, and philanthropies to align USD 5 billion of their resources with new evidence and complement their pledges with new commitments being made by global institutions and governments to end hunger and nourish the future by 2030.
This session will listen to the priorities of member states, review the current state of food insecurity, showcase some of the potential solutions emerging from the Summit, and introduce an emerging Coalition of Action to End Hunger that aims to align and mobilise resources to support national action to end hunger by 2030.
This session will feature a multi-sectoral panel from across Action Tracks and Innovation Levers focused on the challenges and opportunities for more and better data, more useful data, and more data use for food systems transformation. It will feature a moderated panel discussion followed by an open Q&A.
On July 26 at the Pre-Summit, we will jointly discuss solutions and opportunities to promote better food security, nutrition, decent work and inclusive and sustainable livelihoods with a group of governments, civil society, academic, and international organizations.
Act4Food Act4Change is a youth-initiated and led campaign in support of the UNFSS and the GoodFood4All campaign. It brings together young people from around the world to focus on their personal actions as a contribution to food system change. It urges governments, businesses, UN agencies, youth counterparts, and people of all ages to pledge to act boldly and promptly.
The meeting aims to tap into the experience and lessons of countries to help define the priorities of the cluster. It will also shape how the cluster can support the newly established broader gender Coalition for Action, "Making food systems work for women and girls".
This UN Foods Systems Pre-Summit Affiliate Parallel Session hosted by the Government of Bangladesh Ministry of Labour and Employment and the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) brings together leaders from government, civil society, the private sector and non-governmental organisations to explore the important role that workforce nutrition programmes are playing in addressing global malnutrition.
Food safety lies at the heart of addressing hunger and malnutrition, because if food it’s safe, it isn’t food. Progress towards SDG 2 by 2030 may not be realised if we do not ensure food safety. Stakeholders globally are engaging to discuss the development of a Coalition of Action for Food Safety.
By redefining the value of food through True Cost Accounting and redesigning the economics of food through true pricing, market players and governments can increase the true value food markets create for society. In this session, both the science and practical examples will be discussed.
