The Secretary-General of the United Nations has convened a Food Systems Summit
to be held in 2021. The UN Food Systems Summit aims to launch bold new actions to transform the way the world produces and consumes food, as part of the Decade of Action to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.
The Summit is scheduled to take place at the margins of the General Assembly in 2021 and will be guided by five Action Tracks
that plan to bring together key players and draw on the expertise of actors from across the world’s food systems.
Action Track 1
: Ensure access to safe and nutritious food for all
Action Track 2
: Shift to sustainable consumption patterns
Action Track 3
: Boost nature-positive production
Action Track 4
: Advance equitable livelihoods
Action Track 5
: Build resilience to vulnerabilities, shocks and stress
A number of Food System Summit Dialogues
are planned leading up to the summit, including Member State Dialogues
organized by national Governments. The outcomes of these will be of use in developing pathways to sustainable food systems and a valuable contribution to the various work streams in preparing for the Summit.
