The Nutrition for Growth Summit (N4G), hosted by the Government of Japan in December 2020, is a mobilising point for commitments to help shape healthier diets to 2030. The imperative is to transform food systems to achieve SDG2 targets and to avoid undermining health systems (bankrupting them through escalating NCDs), exacerbating greenhouse gas emissions (generating 30% of them), and protecting livelihoods and natural resource use.
While the vision is global, actions need to be local and national. How can we develop the tools, resources and actions to help governments and businesses to implement practical reforms now?
This session will look at practical proposals to advance the 9 food and nutrition commitment areas set out in the N4G Food system commitment framework and ask in particular, how business and other stakeholders can help governments better deliver solutions faster. The areas mapped out by the N4G Summit working group led by DFID and FAO focus on transforming food systems to support people and planetary health now. The action areas to be crystallised in commitments by December 2020 include whole of government food system national action plans, and new actions by business around investment criteria, workforce nutrition, finance, and a Responsible Food Business Pledge.
Breakfast will be served. If you wish to RSVP, please contact Candela Fito at firstname.lastname@example.org.
