About this Event

The conference

The 3rd global conference of the Sustainable Food Systems Programme will be a major milestone in the preparation of the 2021 UN Food Systems Summit, strengthening cohesion among major initiatives and leading actors in the area of food systems and recommending widely supported game-changing actions and implementation mechanisms to promote sustainable food systems.

The conference will also be hosting the very first Food Systems Summit Global Dialogue, which is an invitation only event. Registration to the 3rd global conference does not grant access to the Food Systems Summit Global Dialogue.

The expected outcomes of the conference are:

  • To provide science-based recommendations on the range of actions that can advance food systems transformation within the priority areas identified in the outcome of the 2nd global conference, in contribution to the Action Tracks of the Food Systems Summit 2021; and
  • To provide recommendations that can help define the implementation mechanisms (including accountability mechanisms) for such recommended actions.
