2nd Global Conference on the One Planet: Sustainable Food Systems Programme

5-7 February
San Jose, Costa Rica

The Sustainable Food Systems Programme of the UN One Planet network (10YFP) is a multi-stakeholder partnership with the aim to accelerate the shift towards sustainable consumption and production patterns in all areas related to food. 

Addressing the interrelated challenges in our food systems requires a holistic approach that involves all relevant actors and elements across the system. The conference theme – Good Food for People and the Planet, Working together towards 2030 - highlights the interactions between natural resources, livelihoods, and nutrition, and underscores the need for applying a systems lens. In addition, it stresses the importance of sustainable food systems for the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). 

On the first day of the conference, the side event Sustainable Solutions for Healthy Food Systems will take place in the Argentina Room from 18-19h, see flyer. The event, co-hosted by Bioversity International, FAO, IPES-Food and IUNS, will present GEF-funded Biodiversity for Food and Nutrition project – a comprehensive, multi-sectoral approach to mainstreaming biodiversity for improved nutrition, linking evidence, policies, markets and awareness. Participants will discuss how this approach might be replicated in other countries, as well as in the work of the One Planet Sustainable Food Systems Programme.

More info available here. Participation is upon invitation only.
