By youth and for youth

 

The youth-led World Food Forum empowered by the Youth Committee of FAO was created as an independent network of partners forging a global movement to restore our agri-food systems.

 

Climate change, ongoing conflicts, slowdowns and recessions are the leading causes behind the increase of hunger of up to 161 more million people to a total of 811 million in 2020, which is intensifying in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. The younger generations are the ones that will be left having to deal with such challenges, but they are also the ones better placed to come up with the solutions.

 

Maximo Torero, FAO Chief Economist and Chair of FAO Youth Committee, points out that to resolve the huge challenge our agri-food systems face today we need new ways of thinking and working together.

 

"The ingenuity and energy of global youth are one of our biggest resources. Tapping into this potential energy through initiatives like the World Food Forum is essential to overcoming global hunger," Torero said ahead of the event's launch.
