United Nations Global Compact

Date: 21 April, 2016
Time: 10-11:30
Location: Conference Room 5, United Nations Headquarters
Coordinators: Executive Office of the Secretary-General and Brookings Institution

The round-table discussion will showcase pathways to transform and benchmark food systems, from production to consumption, through individual and collective action. It will consider how investments in food security, nutrition and sustainable agriculture can pay dividends across the whole of the 2030 Agenda, beyond SDG2: actively contributing to ending poverty, delivering equality and safeguarding the planet. It will do so by bringing together stakeholders from different parts of the food and agriculture value chain, exploring the experience of effective and innovative multi-stakeholder stewardship models, and taking into account the importance of evidence-based frameworks that consider needs, policies and resources. The round-table will discuss how supporters, participants and champions of the Zero Hunger Challenge can mobilize political leadership and coordinate action to deliver sustainable, inclusive and resilient food and nutrition systems.
