SLU Global co-arranged Sweden’s third and final global Food Systems Dialogue on May 11 with focus on identifying pathways to a nature-positive food production that contributes to increased food security while at the same time protects natural ecosystems, biodiversity and rehabilitates degraded landscapes and seascapes.
Speakers and participants discussed the need of a holistic and inclusive approach for a transformation towards a productive and prosperous, equitable, empowering, resilient, regenerative, and healthy food system.
Game changing solutions would secure rights to land and natural resources, and make use of climate resilient and agroecological approaches. They would strengthen farmers’ cooperatives and enterprises to add value and increase small-scale farmers share of the market profit.
The participants in the dialogue were national and international representatives from authorities/public sector, civil society, the private sector, academia, interest organizations as well as individual farmers, which gave a global perspective from different parts of the food system.
The event was organized by Sida, Government Offices of Sweden, SIANI, Focali, AgriFoSe2030 and SLU Global.
This is a short summary from an article published by SIANI that highlights some of the issues and solutions raised in the third Swedish global dialogue.
