Advancing Equitable Livelihoods in Food Systems

Part of the UN DESA Global Policy Dialogue Series and a UN Food Systems Summit Dialogue

Wednesday, 16 December 2020 8:30-10:00 a.m. EST

Eradicating hunger and achieving food security remain major challenges for people everywhere. In 2021, we must scale up our efforts to secure adequate nutrition for everyone, generate equitable livelihoods and mitigate climate change. To support the UN system’s efforts towards eliminating hunger, securing decent work and achieving the SDGs, UN DESA is holding a Global Policy Dialogue on food system livelihoods in the context of demographic change and rural development.

Please join us on 16 December to hear internationally renowned experts on food systems, population trends and rural development discuss this urgent issue. The event also will serve as a UN Food Systems Summit Dialogue, informing the 2021 Summit process. The event will discuss these questions, among others:

  • How has the COVID-19 pandemic impacted livelihoods based on food systems, particularly in developing countries?
  • What are the systemic implications of population movement—and disruptions to this movement—on food system livelihoods?
  • What are examples of agricultural and non-agricultural technologies or tools that can be utilized in rural settings to ensure sustainable productivity?
