In this episode of BBC’s Follow the Food, The fight to improve food security, Botanist James Wong explores the problems in our modern food system, and speaks with UN Special Envoy Dr. Agnes Kalibata and UNFSS Action Track leader Michelle Nunn on the importance of striving to end food insecurity and global hunger.

"There's a huge amount of people in the world now - 811 million - that don't know where their next meal is coming from. That is real food insecurity at its worst." – UN Special Envoy, Agnes Kalibata.

Global food insecurity is increasing with every year due to the combined threats of climate change, population growth, poverty, and rising costs. The UN Food Systems Summit will serve as a historic opportunity to empower all people to leverage the power of food systems, get back on track to achieve all 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and end food insecurity.
