HLPF panel: Countries must act now to reshape global food systems, achieve SDGs

Strong political leadership is urgently needed to fix food systems that face unprecedented stresses from climate change, conflict, and other problems, panelists agreed at a July 11 side event at the 2018 U.N. High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) on Sustainable Development.
