Food Systems Summit Secretariat
This September, UN Secretary-General Guterres will convene a Food Systems Summit as part of the Decade of Action to achieve the SDGs by 2030. The Summit will launch bold new actions to deliver progress on all 17 SDGs, each of which relies to some degree on healthier, more sustainable, and equitable food systems.
The Food Systems Summit Dialogues (FSSDs) form a core component of the Summit process and include 3 types of dialogues: Member State, which are organized by national governments; Global, which thematically focuses on major worldwide issues; and Independent, which are organized by individuals or organizations. Each dialogue Convenor is able to submit the outcomes of the dialogue to the Summit through a feedback form.
Synthesis reports of Member State Dialogue and Independent Dialogue feedback forms further identify common themes, important insights, proposed actions, and potential solutions across the Dialogues.
This side event will highlight how the SDGs under review in the 2021 HLPF are coming through in both the Independent and national dialogues and how emerging pathways for countries are intended as an opportunity to national strategies to the 2030 Agenda. The session will include opening remarks by [XX], a panel discussion on the dialogue method and how it can serve as a tool to think about how to achieve the SDGS, as well as the substance of the dialogues themselves and how the outcomes of the dialogue process is integral to the 2030 Agenda; following the panel there will be a brief time for questions.
