Reflecting on the UN Food Systems Summit

The UN Food Systems Summit will take place on 23 September 2021, during the UN General Assembly in New York. It aims “to deliver progress on all 17 of the SDGs through a food systems approach, leveraging the interconnectedness of food systems to global challenges such as hunger, climate change, poverty and inequality.” Its outcomes will have important implications not only for policymaking, but also for research activities in relevant fields.

With the help of WUR experts from Wageningen Centre of Sustainability Governance (WCSG) and other institutions, this Rapid Reaction Seminar (online event), took place a few days after the Summit on 4 October 2021, critically reflecting on its contents and outcomes.

Speakers: Hanna Schebesta (LAW), Sigrid Wertheim-Heck (ENP), Matthew Canfield (University of Leiden)
