UN Food Systems Pre-Summit's Affiliated Event

27/07/2021 27/07/2021

World hunger is increasing, driven by violent conflict, climate change and economic shocks exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to the 2021 Global Report on Food Crises, conflict was the primary driver of crisis-level acute food insecurity or worse for almost 100 million people, including an additional 22 million people in 2020 alone. Many of these crises are protracted, with populations and food systems facing recurring shocks and stressors for years, even decades.

A successful UN Food Systems Summit must address the rising threat of famine, driven by conflict. 

The affiliated event is organized by the Proto-Coalition on Conflict and Hunger/HDP Nexus Solutions Cluster to help to draw attention to this important topic by bringing together high-level panelists from governments and civil society. Panelists will reflect on the need for a multidisciplinary, coherent, comprehensive and systemic approach to strengthening food systems that is implementable in diverse national contexts - including forced displacement - and fosters peace and stability.

Keynote speakers include:

·         Habib Mayar, Deputy General Secretary, g7+ Secretariat (TBC)

·         Willem Olthof, Deputy Head of Unit, Sustainable Agri-Food Systems and Fisheries,  Directorate-General for International Partnerships, European Commission.

·         Muna Luqman, Founder and Chair, Food4Humanity Foundation 

Closing remarks by Valerie Guarnieri, Assistant Executive Director, World Food Programme. The event will be moderated by, Director, Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI).
