International Symposium - The Future of Food

10-11 June 2019
FAO HQ, Rome (Italy)

While undernutrition persists, we are witnessing an unprecedented rise in obesity and diet-related non-communicable diseases, including in low- and middle-income countries.

What is wrong with our food systems? How will we feed a growing and urbanizing world population with natural resources that are limited and are being depleted?

FAO is convening a 2-day symposium on The Future of Food, bringing together academics, researchers, policymakers, representatives from civil society and private sector, parliamentarians and government agencies to discuss these questions (and many more) and to explore pathways to a sustainable future of food and healthy diets for all.

A High Level Event on the Mediterranean Diet is organised on Tuesday 11th June, from 14:00 - 15:00 Rome time (GMT+2).

Live-stream is available here.
