Deputy Secretary-General Briefing to Member States on the UN Food Systems Summit 2021
4 Sep 2020 -  The Deputy Secretary-General Amina J Mohammed and Special Envoy Agnes M. Kalibata, will brief the Member States on the progress being made towards the 2021 Food Systems Summit.

In 2021, UN Secretary-General António Guterres will convene a Food Systems Summit to raise global awareness and land global commitments and actions that transform food systems to resolve not only hunger, but to reduce diet-related disease and heal the planet. The Secretary General is calling for collective action of all citizens to radically change the way we produce, process, and consume food.
Food is a life force for our families, cultures, and our communities. But profound changes in the way food is grown, processed, distributed, consumed, and wasted over the last several decades has led to increasing threats to a future of food that is sustainable, equitable, and secure.
Food interconnects with all aspects of our lives: Water • Land • Energy • Culture • Jobs • Technology • Economies • Policies • Families.
