As the world’s attention falls on redesigning food systems to deliver safe and healthy food, livelihoods, and environments for all, it is equally important to ensure that the human rights of half of its producers and consumers – women – are not left behind.
Farmers across the world are being told to unlearn everything so that they can embark on an economically painful transition to climate-friendly agriculture. This shift is necessary. But it won’t happen until farming becomes a dignified profession where all farmers are compensated for the true value for their production.
Better supporting the role of smallholder producers, including Indigenous Peoples and local communities, in food systems allows a move away from models of intensive large-scale production predicated on cheap food with a great cost to local societies and ecosystems.
The State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World 2021 (SOFI 2021) report presents the first evidence-based global assessment of chronic food insecurity in the year the COVID-19 pandemic emerged and spread across the globe. The report will also focus on complementary food system solutions that address the key drivers of food insecurity and malnutrition, and will be presented by the FAO, IFAD, UNICEF, WFP and WHO. Join in from 10:00 EDT.
The Pre-Summit will set the stage for the culminating global event in September by bringing together diverse actors from around the world to leverage the power of food systems to deliver progress on all 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The event, which is open to all who would like to participate, will take a hybrid format, with an in-person component complemented by a vast virtual programme and platform. Join us from 9:00 CEST.
The Pre-Summit includes an additional programme of affiliated sessions which will serve a key complementary role in bringing out additional valuable ideas and offering a platform to convene actors around the world to ensure more voices and ideas are heard, and more actors are thinking about how to take action in their own contexts. The Pre-Summit will run over three days from 9:00-19:30 CEST, and there are three time blocks for parallel affiliated sessions in the morning, mid-day, and evening.
The Summit has revealed the 15 action areas with more than 50 solution clusters that will serve as a key element to underpin discussions at the Pre-Summit gathering from July 26-28. Each action area, developed by more than 500 members of the Summit’s five Action Tracks, represents a cluster of game-changing propositions that aim to deliver the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by transforming entire food systems.

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...
