A Peer-to-Peer Exchange Among Policy Makers

Join us in transforming food and agricultural systems through a specialised forum for policy makers.

Do you want to transform agriculture and food systems in your country?

Do you want these systems to contribute better towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)?

Do you want to connect with likeminded policy makers?

Join an interactive global network of policy makers interested in making our food systems sustainable in the face of current global challenges.

Through this network you will have the opportunity to meet, connect with and get inspired by other policy makers via peer-to-peer exchanges. Share your experiences, get to know the evidence and receive targeted support that can boost your achievements and the design of effective policies in your own transformative processes at the national and subnational level.

Participate in this policy forum through peer-to-peer exchanges, consisting of face-to-face, on-line and informal meetings. Shape the themes of these exchanges, which will include topics like increasing the resilience of food systems in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change.


Join a community of policy makers engaged or interested in transforming food systems through novel integrative approaches. This policy forum will provide access to community driven coaching, regional and international champions, experts, case studies, tools and evidence.



Why Should you Participate?
How will you benefit? 

Policy makers and official advisors in ministries, departments, commissions etc., at national and subnational levels in the agriculture, nutrition, rural development, environment, finance and planning sectors. Women and young leaders are particularly encouraged to participate.

Both the policy forum and peer to peer exchanges are open to policy makers worldwide. Nevertheless, we are particularly interested in engaging with policy makers in Sub-Sahara Africa, South Asia and Southeast Asia.
