When food systems are sustainable and inclusive, they have the potential to deliver food security and nutrition and generate economic benefits or values for all system stakeholders.
In 2021, the High-level Political Forum (HLPF) further recognised that transforming the current food systems isnecessary for sustainable development and reaching the 17 SDGs.
This was reaffirmed at the UN Food Systems Summit (UNFSS) 2021 furthermore it was acknowledged that transformative action through food systems can play an important role in driving the global recovery from the pandemic.
A food systems transformation requires multi-stakeholder collaboration and coordination, involving multiple actors including right-holders, duty-bearers and their intermediaries. Transformative action demands the engagement and close participation of the people who drive our food systems, such as smallholder farmers, SMEs, youth and Indigenous communities.
