United Nations reaffirm commitment to inclusivity ahead of the Food Systems Summit.

The UN Food Systems Summit which started as a need to accelerate Sustainable Development Goals, has once again assured the populace that it’s a “People’s Summit” .

In the words of Dr. Agnes Kalibata UN Secretary-General’s Special Envoy to the 2021 Food Systems Summit, The UN Food Systems Summit was borne out of a need to accelerate progress on the Sustainable Development Goals, which include delivering fundamental human rights, and this underpins all of the Summit’s efforts.

In the statement made public UN categorically stated that, throughout the pandemic, those with least have been hardest hit, only reinforcing the critical importance of improving food systems, while the vital yet unsung contribution of farmers, producers and grassroots groups has become clear. The Food Systems Summit, announced by the UN Secretary-General in 2019, has taken on a new significance as a moment to reset, defining 2021 as a make-or-break year to be reconciled with nature and secure the wellbeing of people and our planet.

However, With four months to go until the Pre-Summit in Italy, the Food Systems Summit reaffirms its commitment to ensure the most marginalised and vulnerable groups have every opportunity to participate in, contribute to and benefit from the Summit process.

United Nations further implored, everyone to lean into this opportunity and continue to lend their voice. The Summit will continue to open its doors to any and all with public fora, surveys, and the online Summit Community, and invites everyone to champion improved food systems in their own communities as Food Systems Heroes.
