The Great Food Challenge Digital Event Series consists of three events addressing global food, agriculture, and land use challenges in the face of current climate and health emergencies.
Organized by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO) and Climate Action, the three-part series responds to the growing demand for new models of multi-stakeholder collaboration to achieve food security, sustainable development, and other aspects of the SDGs.
The series is also part of ‘The Roadmap to COP26,’ a set of virtual events curated to reflect the major challenges and opportunities that will take center stage at the UN Climate Change Conference (COP 26) in Glasgow, UK, in 2021. The Roadmap events aim to help organizations from both the public and private sectors maintain momentum on climate action towards COP 26.
The three parts of the Great Food Challenge Digital Event Series are taking place as follows:
- Part 1 on the theme of ‘Food Security and the Global Recovery’ (3 September),
- Part 2 on the theme of ’75th World Food Day: the Future of Food’ (16 October), and
- Part 3 on the theme of ‘Agribusiness and the SDGs’ (3 December).
