Front and centre: Smallholder farmers at the heart of food systems transformations

10:00 ET | 16:00 CEST

This year the United Nations will host the first Food Systems Summit with the goal of uniting multiple sectors and actors around building more equitable and sustainable food systems as part of the Decade of Action to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. A pre-summit is planned in Rome on 26 – 28 July to galvanize and mobilize new commitments, partnerships, and financing for transforming global food systems.

Over two days of virtual events on 14 and 15 July, IFAD has partnered with Devex to dig into what is on the agenda, talk to experts both inside and outside the Summit planning process, and set the stage for what success looks like for the pre-summit and summit to follow.

Topics will include:

  • Fireside chat with Gilbert Houngbo, IFAD President, and Ruramiso Mashumba, National Youth Chairperson for the Zimbabwe Farmers Union.
  • What pre-summit success looks like for various stakeholders including farmers, local consumer groups, and environmental activists.
  • How to optimize the pre-summit and summit planning process for practical and inclusive outcomes.
  • The role of agribusiness and civil society in these global conversations.
  • Nutrition outcomes of the pre-summit in advance of Nutrition for Growth in December.
