About the 3rd Global Conference of the SFS Programme
The purpose of this 3rd global conference is to provide substantial input to the UN Food Systems Summit that is tentatively scheduled for the third quarter of 2021, building on the achievements of the SFS Programme’s membership during the first five years of implementation as well as the outcomes of the Programme’s previous two global conferences.
Previous editions of the conference harnessed consensus on a range of priority areas for action. The 1st global conference in South Africa concluded with the Pretoria Resolution, while the 2nd global conference in Costa Rica finalized with the San José Call to Action.
Objectives and outcomes
Following the San José Call to Action of the SFS Programme’s 2nd conference, the objectives of this meeting are:
- To strengthen the common vision that suggests that only through inclusive multi-stakeholder collaboration will we be able to achieve the profound transformation, through a set of key actions and implementation mechanisms, that our food systems require;
- To provide a platform for structured discussion around the science underlying global efforts to characterise and assess progress towards more sustainable food systems;
- and, overall, to raise the political importance of sustainable food systems among public and private sector leaders.
About the Sustainable Food Systems (SFS) Programme
The Sustainable Food Systems (SFS) Programme is a multi-stakeholder partnership focused on catalyzing more sustainable food consumption and production patterns. Our shared vision enables our partners to collaborate on joint initiatives, which range from normative, advocacy and policy support activities, to research and development projects as well as on-the-ground implementation activities that address our food systems challenges.
The Programme promotes a holistic approach, taking into account the interconnections and trade-offs between all elements and actors in food systems.in October 2015, as a multi-stakeholder programme to promote SCP patterns in the area of food and agriculture.
