The UN Food Systems Summit (UNFSS) offers a tremendous opportunity to usher in a new era of food systems transformations that is both gender inclusive and gender empowering.
This UNFSS solution cluster focuses on three critical components of gender equitable food systems: nutrition, economic empowerment, and leadership. A new and actionable agenda that leverages synergies and complementarity of approaches in these areas is essential in accelerating progress towards more resilient, nutritious, and equitable food systems.
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 is the second in a series of sessions to bring onboard country partners to help shape the Cluster’s future agenda, way of working and operationalization. In the first country consultation meeting (29th June), several countries already expressed their interest in the Cluster, stating it was relevant to the priorities and activities that are being articulated in national dialogues.
This session aims to take the consultation with country representatives one step further with statements of support from countries and donors and joined identification of next steps
