FAO Event June 2019
Thursday, 2019/06/13 | 07:18:51

While undernutrition persists, we are witnessing an unprecedented rise in obesity and diet-related non-communicable diseases, also in low- and middle-income countries.

 

What is wrong with our food systems? How will we feed a growing and urbanizing world population with natural resources that are more and more limited and depleted?

 

This 2-day symposium will bring together academics, researchers, policymakers, representatives from civil society and private sector, parliamentarians and government agencies to discuss these questions (and many more), and explore pathways to a sustainable future of food and healthy diets for all.

 

Discussions will revolve around four main areas:

1.Research, Knowledge Gaps and Needs for Sustainable Food Systems and Healthy Diets

2.Governance of food systems for healthy diets

3.Building Consumer Confidence in Food Systems

4.Transforming Food Systems: What does it take?

Figure: Obesity and diet-related diseases are rising in all countries while undernutrition persists
