Equitable Livelihoods, Gender Equality and Aquatic Foods
“We need women’s voices and leadership to be prominent in food systems. It’s the only way to guarantee that food systems are just,” says Jemimah Njuki, Director for Africa at the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) and Lead of the Summit’s Gender Lever of Change, who joins Aaron Niederhelman as co-host in this conversation about equitable livelihoods, gender equality and women’s empowerment.
Aquatic foods in the future can become a key forum for equality and inclusion. Guest in this episode, Shakuntala Thilsted, Global Lead for Nutrition and Public Health at WorldFish, and 2021 World Food Prize Laureate, explains how she hopes that winning the Food Prize will inspire young women and girls to study science: “It is extremely rewarding, extremely invigorating-you can reach far - and you can have a good time!”

On the eve of the Tokyo Nutrition for Growth Summit 2021 the UNFSS Secretariat is hosting this event to underscore the linkage between nutrition and food systems, and to heighten global awareness, momentum, and actions toward delivering on the promise of the UN Decade of Action on Nutrition (2016-2025), and nine years remaining to deliver on the 2030 Agenda. Join us from 11:00 EAT / 17:00 JST.
The Nutrition for Growth Summit will be an important opportunity to set the world on a path to achieving the SDG targets – in particular, to end malnutrition in all its forms by 2030 and to strengthen the link between diet, food systems and health. The goal is to galvanize commitments from governments, civil society, the private sector, donor agencies and the UN to end malnutrition in all of its forms.

Good food keeps us healthy. It helps us reach our potential. It strengthens our communities, powers our economies, and protects our planet. But not everyone gets good food every day, and this has to change. The Summit is bringing together everyone – farmers, Indigenous Peoples, young people and citizens from across the globe – to carve a path to a world where good food for all is a reality. Join us and take your first action...
