Theme: Our Actions are Our Future - Better production, better nutrition, a better environment, and a better life. Virtual event in observance of World Food Day (16 October).
Under the World Food Day 2021 theme "Our actions are our future", the New York-based virtual event will showcase innovative solutions and calls to action to ensure that our agri-food systems deliver enough affordable, nutritious and safe food for all. World Food Day stands to raise awareness of the need to support the transformation to MORE efficient, inclusive, resilient and sustainable agri-food systems for better production, better nutrition, a better environment, and a better life, leaving no one behind.
Placing food security and nutrition as a priority and rethinking agri-food systems is a core part of the solution, especially as every one of us shifts up a gear during the Decade of Action on the road to 2030. Innovative ways of collaboration can thrive, and in turn leverage the policy and political momentum already created by the UN Food Systems Pre-Summit in Rome and by the Summit in New York
Co-organized by the Permanent Missions of Argentina and New Zealand, the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and the World Food Programme (WFP)
