FAO, UNDRR and WFO Independent Dialogue on "Our Food Systems at Risk: UNFSS Independent Dialogue on Food Systems Resilience"

16/07/2021

FAO, UNDRR and WFO will host a virtual Independent Dialogue entitled “Our Food System at Risk: Scaling Up Resilient Agri-Food Production”, on on 22 July 2021 at 12:00 CEST.  

Global crises such as COVID-19, the climate emergency, pollution, biodiversity loss and conflict and other disasters are revealing significant risks and vulnerabilities in our food system and posing an existential threat to both humans and ecosystems alike.

In the build-up towards the UN Food Systems Summit, this Independent Dialogue will set the scene for urgent transformative actions to strengthen comprehensive risk management for resilient agri-food production that are vital for achieving the SDGs, including the targets of the Sendai Framework. 

Register now to be a part of this trailblazing discussion that will unpack the systemic nature of risk in relation to food systems and encourage innovative thinking in identifying, managing and preventing complex risk drivers that threaten the resilience of food production. 

Dialogue Goals

This Independent Dialogue will unpack the systemic nature of risk in relation to food systems and encourage innovative thinking in identifying, managing and preventing complex risk drivers that threaten the resilience of food production. Discussions will centre around the intersections between disaster risk management and climate change adaptation in the agricultural sector as a key solution towards more risk- and climate-resilient and sustainable food systems.
