About the United Nations Food Systems Summit

In 2021, the United Nations will convene a Food Systems Summit as part of the Decade of Action to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. The Summit will launch bold new actions to deliver progress on all 17 SDGs, each of which relies in part on healthier, more sustainable and equitable food systems.

As the world’s largest public agricultural research network, CGIAR is making invaluable contributions to the Summit, helping to shape the agenda and providing scientific evidence and innovations that are transforming food, land and water systems.

Highlighted Events

CGIAR Food Systems Summit Dialogues

CGIAR Research Centers and Programs are hosting and participating in a number of Food Systems Summit Dialogues leading up to the Summit itself. These global dialogues aim to connect a diverse range of stakeholders to identify the most powerful ways to make food systems stronger and more equitable. Dialogues fall into three categories: Member State Summit Dialogues, which are expected to result in shaping national pathways to sustainable food systems; Independent Summit Dialogues, which are convened by individuals or organizations and give the public ways to engage and contribute; and Global Summit Dialogues, which take place alongside key global events.
