Expert Panel for the GFFA 2023 – 19th January 2023, 4.00 – 5:30 pm

Crisis-proof nutrition through sustainable and climate-resilient agriculture – the private sector as an actor

Register here.

How can a healthy diet be ensured while respecting planetary boundaries? Global agricultural and food systems are facing major challenges: they must produce more and better food, be more effective and efficient, and produce more sustainably and, above all, more climate-resilient.

The expert panel will shed light on the requirements for agricultural and food systems in order to achieve crisis-proof nutrition and SDGs 1 and 2. It bridges the gap between the needs for food security and the importance of local engagement by private local and global actors and the producers themselves in order to advance a sustainable transformation of agricultural and food systems.

The expert panel will address questions such as: What are levers for transformation? What role do companies and social entrepreneurs play in the transformation of food systems? What good examples from the private sector emerge from sustainable or climate-resilient approaches that are scalable, sustainable and can be supported and implemented locally? Which institutional reforms are needed to drive the transformation, e.g., by changing the political framework for investments or improving financing opportunities for companies and enterprises?
