The Sustainable Food Systems Programme of the 10-YFP on Sustainable Consumption and Production Patterns

The Sustainable Food Systems (SFS) Programme of the 10-Year Framework for Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production Patterns (10YFP) is a multi-stakeholder initiative to accelerate the shift towards more sustainable food systems.

The SFS Programme aims to promote sustainability all along the food value chain, from farm to fork. It does so through concrete activities including in the areas of awareness raising, capacity development, facilitating access to knowledge and information, and strengthening partnerships. The Programme brings together existing initiatives and partnerships working in related areas, highlighting good practices and success stories, and builds synergies as well as cooperation among stakeholders to leverage resources towards mutual objectives and minimize duplication of ongoing efforts. Within its four work areas, the Programme focuses on priority activities such as the promotion of sustainable diets and the reduction of food losses and waste.

The SFS Programme is governed by a Multi-stakeholder Advisory Committee (MAC) with 23 members from five different stakeholder clusters. The current MAC members are:

  • Government agencies: Argentina, Brazil, Costa Rica, France, Honduras, Netherland, United States
  • Civil society organizations: Biovision, IISD, IFOAM (4th CSO cluster seat currently vacant)
  • Research and technical institutions: German Development Institute, Hebrew University, Universitat Oberta de Catalunya, ENEA
  • UN agencies and other international organizations: CIHEAM, FAO, UNEP, UNSCN
  • Private sector: Barilla, FoodDrinkEurope, Nestlé, Smaackmakers
