IUFoST, the global scientific body for Food Science and Technology, held its 2nd Global Food Summit, Strategies and Actions for Sustainability of Future Food Systems, on 18 September 2020. Technical Working Groups around the Summit Focus are beginning on 27 October.
Nations around the world are facing serious challenges relating to food, water and energy security, health and environmental change, and the ever- increasing demand for science advice. The United Nations is convening a Food Systems Summit in 2021 as part of its Decade of Action to achieve Sustainable Development Goals. The global pandemic has accelerated the need for a comprehensive and collective global response to the needs of future food systems. The purpose of this second IUFoST Global Food Summit is to bring together those who provide advice to governments on these critical global issues related to Global Food and Nutrition Security to share best practices and develop integrated action plans for now and in preparation towards the UN Food Systems Summit of 2021.
