Building Forward Better: Experts Echo the Call for Food System Transformation
Last week, in a virtual roundtable discussion organized by the World Food Prize (WFP), seven agriculture experts echoed a call for renewed leadership from the United States to help transform food systems and, in the process, lead the way to combat food insecurity, malnutrition, and climate change around the world.
While the challenges before the world in the wake of the COVID pandemic are immense and complex, the roundtable struck a tone of general optimism. Claudia Sadoff, the Executive Management Team Convener and Managing Director for Research Delivery and Impact at the CGIAR, said in recent months “a range of constituencies [has] come forward to share their visions and discuss how we can connect food system transformation to climate action and biodiversity conversation… Science and innovation will be a critical part of the mix, providing new evidence, insights, and solutions that feed into strategic alliances for change.”
