About this event
WHO is the UN anchor of Action Track 2 (AT2) of the UN Food Systems Summit. AT2 will host a second Public Forum on 3 February 2021.
This second Public Forum is an opportunity to canvas current thinking on game-changing ideas and create an opportunity for you to share input and innovative ideas.
Specifically, we want to hear your views on the following three questions:
- What do you think of the emerging solutions proposed by AT2?
- How to ensure AT2 proposed ideas and solutions are truly game-changing?
- What are the remaining gaps?
Kindly note that the event is conducted in English language only.
In September 2021, UN Secretary-General António Guterres will convene a Food Systems Summit as part of the Decade of Action to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. Rebuilding the food systems of the world will also enable us
to answer the UN Secretary-General’s call to “build back better” from COVID-19.
The ambition of the 2021 UN Food Systems Summit is to launch a collective journey of transforming our food systems to give us the best possible chance of delivering on the 2030 agenda. Everyone has a role to play in this. Only by coming together and challenging one another we can spark new ideas and create meaningful impact.
The Summit pursues 5 specific objectives in support of its broader vision of delivering progress on all 17 SDGs. These 5 specific objectives are called the Action Tracks. Action tracks will offer multi-stakeholder constituencies a space to share and learn,
with a view to supercharging their progress by fostering new actions and partnerships and by amplifying existing initiatives. Each action track has a chair and 2 vice-chairs (one being a youth representative).
Action Track 2 (AT2) focuses on shifting to sustainable and healthy consumption patterns. We seek game-changing solutions to realize a shift to sustainably produced
food, strengthen local value chains and improve nutrition (especially amongst the most vulnerable), and reuse and recycle food resources so that we can half food waste.
The AT2 has organized its work into 3 workstreams on food environments, food demand, and food waste.
