UN Serbia Thematic Update on Sustainable Food Systems
24 March 2022
This thematic update is part of a series developed by the United Nations in Serbia with the intention to inform our programming, share comprehensive data and complex information with the wider development community in a fast-changing context, and jointly advocate towards our national and local counterparts.
The Global Food Systems Summit was convened by the UN Secretary General during the United Nations General assembly in September 2021. It presented key opportunities to set out a new direction for the food systems, one that respects planetary boundaries, focuses on healthy diets for all and provides equitable and sustainable livelihoods. The summit brought unprecedented attention to the impact of food systems, on climate and sustainability.
Today, it is not enough to produce food. We need to design food systems that protect the earth and keep the dignity of people at the centre, ensuring enough food globally and decent work locally, while leaving no one behind. We hope that you will contribute to these efforts.
