UNFSS 2021-A 'People's Summit and a 'Solutions Summit' 

“Transforming food systems is crucial for delivering all of the Sustainable Development Goals.”

Our global food system is far from working for all people and the planet. As such, the U.N. Secretary-General called for the first-ever U.N. Food System Summit. 

 The Summit will deliver bold new commitments, actions, and solutions towards sustainable and equitable food systems. The aim is to brings those not normally represented – especially women, youth, and indigenous peoples, into global and national Dialogues in order to identify and work together on agreed pathways towards food system change. 

The Summit is structured around Five Action Tracks, each with multiple Action Areas that brings together diverse stakeholders through Solution Clusters. Essentially, a Cluster is a set of solutions, actions, and evidence-based approaches that will evolve into a coalition and operate at both national and global levels.

“Women need to be at the table and heard.”

Five Action Tracks
