Three years after the release of the Joint Roadmap towards BAPA+40: Strengthening collaboration among Rome-based Agencies on South-South and Triangular Cooperation, FAO, IFAD and WFP will share their views on how SSTC can both support food systems transformation and address immediate and mid-term needs in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. In particular, the RBAs will bring in examples of how their work is positively affecting the transformation of food systems.
Together with Government representatives, there will be an interactive discussion on how challenges such as COVID-19 have impacted key aspects of food systems as well as these agencies’ efforts to support small-scale farmers as they improve their livelihoods.
