It is unacceptable that hunger is on the rise at a time when the world wastes more than 1 billion tonnes of food every year. It is time to change how we produce and consume, including to reduce greenhouse emissions. Transforming food systems is crucial for delivering all the Sustainable Development Goals. As a human family, a world free of hunger is our imperative.
The first meeting of the UN Food Systems Summit’s Scientific Group has taken place. This Group of leading experts from across diverse disciplines including natural sciences, agronomy, ecology, natural resources, nutrition, and social sciences will inform the Summit’s content.
