In 2021, the United Nations Secretary-General will convene a Food Systems Summit as part of the Decade of Action to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. That Summit will launch bold new actions to deliver progress on all 17 SDGs, each of which relies to some degree on healthier, more sustainable, and equitable food systems.
Against this background, the UN Environment Management Group (EMG), in close collaboration with UNU-FLORES, is organising a "Food System Resilience through Integrated Natural Resource Management Nexus Dialogue" as an independent dialogue of the Food System Summit.
The dialogue will respect the Summit’s three principles of engagement, feature structured conversations among stakeholder groups with different perspectives, and contribute to the Summit.
Recognising that food systems are simultaneously the cause and effect of layered variables and interactions, the Nexus Dialogue seeks to investigate the accelerating effect of Integrated Natural Resource Management (INRM). With the aim of detangling complexity and enhanced by Circular Bioeconomy (CBE) strategies, the Dialogue focuses on INRM’s impact on poverty, health, and climate.
