#SUMMITDIALOGUES – WHAT ACTIONS FOR MORE SUSTAINABLE FOOD SYSTEMS IN THE MEDITERRANEAN?
Tuesday, 27 April 2021 • 14:00-17:30 CEST
The UN Secretary-General has called for a Food Systems Summit to unleash the power of food and deliver progress on all 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). During preparatory summit dialogues, diverse stakeholders are invited to identify ways and actions to make food systems more sustainable.
The CIHEAM; the FAO; the UfMs; the UN One Planet Network Sustainable Food Systems Programme, in collaboration with the PRIMA Foundation, are organising two Food Systems Summit Dialogues (27 April and 3 June 2021) aiming at advancing a common understanding of the complex environment of Sustainable Food Systems in the Mediterranean region (SFS MED).
SFS-MED INDEPENDENT DIALOGUE 1* – WHAT ACTIONS FOR MORE SUSTAINABLE FOOD SYSTEMS IN THE MEDITERRANEAN?
Tuesday, 27 April 2021 • 14:00-17:30 hrs CET
The objectives of this first dialogue are:
Ensuring a deeper understanding of the interconnections and interdependences within Mediterranean food systems at every stage (from production, processing, distribution, marketing to the consumption of food, including food waste), based on consolidated scientific evidence and local knowledge;
Catalysing joint action, using the Mediterranean Diet as a lever to improve the sustainability and -resilience of Mediterranean food systems, by bridging Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP);
Engaging a wide network of food systems stakeholders within the broader frameworks of green, blue and circular economy, to design future scenarios of sustainable food systems in the Mediterranean region.
