Organized by the Permanent Missions of Chile and India to the United Nations, and FAO, in preparation for the official launch of the International Year of Fruits and Vegetables in late 2020, this side event aims to have a discussion among relevant stakeholders in order to highlight the key roles of fruits and vegetables in contributing to nutrition, health, sustainable production systems, income and employment generation and other relevant dimensions of sustainable development. All governments must work together with all relevant stakeholders to ensure participation of all actors in the construction of a better, more sustainable and resilient fruit and vegetable sector as the World recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic.
