The Pre-Summit of the UN Food Systems Summit 2021 aims to lay the groundwork and set the stage for an ambitious and productive UN Food Systems Summit, by bringing together diverse actors from around the world to leverage the power of food systems to deliver progress on all 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Through the Pre-Summit, the UN Food Systems Summit will reaffirm its commitment to promote human rights for all and ensure the most marginalised groups have an opportunity to participate in, contribute to and benefit from the Summit process. Under the leadership of the UN Secretary-General António Guterres and in partnership with the Government of Italy, the Pre-Summit aims to deliver the latest evidence-based and scientific approaches to food systems transformation from around the world, launch a set of new commitments through coalitions of action and mobilize new financing and partnerships.
The event, which is open to all who would like to participate, will take a hybrid format, with an in-person component complemented by a virtual programme and platform.
