The national launch of the Food Systems Platform – PlaSA Colombia, developed within the framework of the National Policies and Strategies initiative, took place on April 27th at the Universidad de Los Andes in Bogota.

The event had 60 attendees in person and 593 visits to the live broadcast on YouTube, an audience that, with their questions energized the panel and allowed addressing the challenges currently facing the food system from different perspectives.


To open the launch, a panel of experts moderated by: María Fernanda Mideros, Director of the Center on Agrifood Systems at the Los Andes University, formed by: Sara Eloisa del Castillo, Director of the Observatory of Food and Nutritional Sovereignty and Security of the National University of Colombia (OBSSAN UN), Felipe Fonseca, General Director of the Rural Agricultural Planning Unit (UPRA) of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development and with Diego Mora, FAO Representative in Colombia, discussed the challenges that the Colombian food system is facing and the possible institutional and policy actions that should be taken to address these challenges. They also highlighted the importance of informed awareness of food consumption, the importance of knowing more about the supply system and the different diets in both urban and rural areas, as well as information systems at regional and local levels, understanding the political, cultural as well as economic diversity of Colombia, allowing for a better understanding of the food systems in Colombia.


The launch of PlaSA Colombia marks the beginning of a road ahead in the search for joint solutions to the challenges facing the Colombian food system. The platform is configured as a space that makes relevant information and analysis tools available to stakeholders and interested entities to address these challenges. In short, it is an important step towards the construction of a more sustainable, equitable, and efficient food system in Colombia.
