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!”
In partnership with the Government of Italy, the Pre-Summit took place in Rome from 26–28 July 2021. The event set the stage for the upcoming Summit on 23 Septemeber 2021 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).
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...
The Summit Community is a highly collaborative space to guide the science, solutions, concepts and outcomes of the Summit. The platform is open to anyone with an interest in food systems at all levels, and will be a key entry point for stakeholder engagement on defining the solutions.
