IFAD's Contribution to the Food Systems Summit (2021)

In 2021, the Secretary-General of the United Nations will convene the Food Systems Summit (FSS). The three Rome-based agencies (RBAs) – IFAD, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Food Programme (WFP) – have committed to provide full support for the organization of the Summit. 

The objective of the grant is to contribute to the organization of the FSS in support of the Summit’s overall goal of generating consensus, knowledge and tools to help stakeholders manage trade-offs and unleash the benefits of food systems for all people in a sustainable manner. The FSS will offer a catalytic moment for large-scale public mobilization and actionable commitments to invest in diverse ways in making food systems sustainable, climate-adapted, inclusive, nutritious, resilient and efficient.
