2016 is marked by a number of international processes that promise to shape the way we address urban development, climate, and nutrition. These include the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the Habitat III conference, the launch of the Decade of Action on Nutrition, and the Committee on World Food Security’s focus on food systems and urbanization.
To link to these opportunities and highlight the need for a coordinated approach to addressing urban food system challenges, this EATx will convene an event at the United Nations across sectors and disciplines involved in the food-system challenges to discuss concrete solutions and commitments. The program will include a series of keynotes and an interactive panel discussion involving prominent experts from government, academia, the private sector, the UN and civil society.
GAIN is one of the co-sponsors of the event.
