Transforming agrifood systems and fostering inclusive rural development in the context of COVID-19 to end rural poverty
2 Dec 2020 -  As the General Assembly holds a special session in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the side-event “Transforming agrifood systems and fostering inclusive rural development in the context of COVID-19 to end rural poverty” analyzed the economic, social and environmental potential of an inclusive process of agrifood system transformation for the eradication of rural poverty and achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. Looking towards the 2021 UN Food Systems Summit, the discussion highlighted the holistic nature of the 2030 Agenda, and the strong interlinkages between the Sustainable Development Goals, their targets and the entire 2030 Agenda.
Efforts to build back better from the COVID-19 pandemic and the 2021 UN Food Systems Summit offer unique opportunities to identify, agree and promote action, and will make our food systems more sustainable, resilient and inclusive, directly contributing to the eradication of rural poverty.
