Description

Bringing together over 2000 participants, from 161 countries - including 22 Heads of State/Governments and more than 100 Ministerial delegates - over 150 Non-State-Actor organizations as well as the UN System and other International Organizations, the UN Food Systems Summit +2 Stocktaking Moment (UNFSS+2) is taking place at FAO Headquarters in Rome on 24-26 of July. The high-level event will build on the momentum of the 2021 Food Systems Summit and will create a conducive space for countries to review progress on commitments to action and identify successes, enduring bottlenecks, and priorities to close the implementation gap for food systems transformation. The three-day meeting will further highlight the central role of food systems transformations in the overall advancement of the Sustainable Development Goals ahead of the SDG Summit in September 2023, and advocate for urgent action at scale, building on the latest evidence that sustainable food systems contribute to better and more sustainable outcomes for people, planet, and prosperity leaving no one behind.

It will include a high-level opening segment, three high-level sessions during the opening day, four plenary sessions, several leadership dialogues, special events, and side events, as well as a high-level closing session.
