Tokyo Nutrition for Growth Summit 2021 side event discusses the role of informal markets within future food systems
The Tokyo Nutrition for Growth Summit 2021 took place on 7–8 December 2021. Ahead of the summit, on 2 December 2021, the International Institute for Environment and Development and the International Livestock Research Institute hosted a side event on the role of informal markets within future food systems.
The purpose of the side event was to derive a set of principles to help national policymakers develop risk-based policies that reward positive food safety as opposed to criminalization and marginalization. Such policies will improve the governance, operations and future of informal markets to ensure their continued contribution to livelihoods, health and nutrition.
