event flyer

In 2021, UN Secretary-General António Guterres will convene a Food Systems Summit as part of the Decade of Action to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (“SDGs”) by 2030 with the intention of inducing collaborative efforts to Build Back Better , and transform the way society produces, consumes, and considers food. The Summit supports nutrient-rich Food Systems Dialogues, one of the five priority workstreams.

Ahead of the event, the UN Environment Management Group, in close collaboration with UNU Institute for Integrated Management of Material Fluxes and of Resources UNU-FLORES will organize a "Food system resilience through integrated natural resource management nexus" dialogue as an independent dialogue of the Food System Summit.

In recognizing that food systems are simultaneously the cause- and effect of layered variables and interactions, the Nexus Dialogue seeks to investigate the accelerating effect of Integrated Natural Resource Management, underlined by systems-thinking. With the aim of detangling complexity, the Dialogue will focus on INRM’s impact, enhanced through Circular Bioeconomy strategies, on reducing the risks of poverty, health, and climate. More info...
