Parallel Session 2. Stepping up Actions to Build Resilient Food Systems
10:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Sun Sep 22, 2019


The global food system is vulnerable to increasing shocks and stresses. International efforts to tackle food insecurity are currently failing and for the first time in four decades, we are seeing a rise in world hunger after a prolonged decline.

This session will highlight concrete and scalable actions across and within agriculture and food related sectors, including the entire value chain from production to consumption.
