In partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation, the UK Government will host a food security and nutrition event on November 20 in London. 

Addressing the urgent hunger and malnutrition crisis, this summit shines a light on nearly 1 billion people facing food insecurity and the rising child malnutrition figures. Factors include conflict, climate change, and Covid-19 impacts. 

The focus is on four pillars: child malnutrition prevention, leveraging science and tech for food security, proactive famine response, and creating sustainable food systems. The United Kingdom’s Prime Minister will unite 200 global representatives to foster innovative collaborations and solutions.

The Summit will be livestreamed. The link will be accessible on the UK Global Food Security Summit website in due course. Please check back for updates here.
