4 Things to Know about the UN Food Systems Summit +2 Stocktaking Moment

It’s been nearly two years since the UN Food Systems Summit – a momentous event that gathered leaders from around the world in the hopes of spurring sustainable food system transformation. On July 24-26, 2023, the UN held an important check-in event – the UNFSS+2 – which was designed to assess progress since 2021 and generate further momentum towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Here are four key takeaways our team gleaned from the event.

1. Countries are significantly off track to achieving the SDGs by 2030.

2. The private sector is a critical partner for achieving food systems progress.

3. Coalitions continue to play a critical role in convening stakeholders and maximizing resources for food systems transformation.

4. Those looking to invest in food systems transformation must consider the “true value” of food.
