In the run-up to the UN Food Systems Summit, excitement is building around game-changing solutions emerging from the Action Tracks and country policy priorities identified in national dialogues. Development of these solutions is benefiting from the lens of the five UNFSS cross-cutting levers and the evidence-based focus provided by the Scientific Group. But implementation will depend on countries’ ability to access and adequately utilize funding for food systems transformation. 

This event, organized by CGIAR-IFPRI in coordination with the UNFSS Scientific Group, will bring together a group of experts to discuss options for mobilizing and utilizing funding to finance food systems transformation and achieve the related Sustainable Development Goals. Speakers will consider financing options from the perspective of consumers, value chain operators, international development funds, public budgets, banking systems, and capital markets, with a particular focus on  SDG 2 Zero Hunger.
