“As a human family, a world free from hunger is our imperative”
UN Secretary-General António Guterres
Healthier, more inclusive, sustainable and equitable food systems have the power to catalyse the achievement of all 17 Sustainable Development Goals by 2030 in every country. Collectively recognizing this, people from all walks of life and generations, government representatives, youth, indigenous peoples and food producers at all scales and a wide range of international organizations, followed the Secretary-General António Guterres’ call on World Food Day 2019 and came together to design and deliver the “People’s”, and “Solutions’” Summit.
Unprecedented efforts took place worldwide, bringing together more than 500 experts from about 250 0rganisations, representatives from farmers, youth and indigenous peoples and 70 countries regularly contributing to the Summit’s Action Tracks’ work, more than 28 internationally renowned experts, representing networks of thousands of scientists active in the Scientific Group, over forty organisations from the UN System, and more than one hundred thousand individuals engaged through dialogues, to design bold new actions and deliver progress on all 17 SDGs through tangible and positive changes to the world’s food systems.
