Game Changing Propositions Wave 1
1.17 Develop a new global food safety index that will be validated, improved, and developed into a standalone index to be updated annually and will motivate and measure progress in improving food safety.
1.18 Develop a Global Alliance on Safe Food for All: an action-oriented, member-driven, collaborative platform for cooperation (among governments, bilateral and multilateral organisations, food businesses and other stakeholders) that will design and apply food safety solutions which are ‘fit for purpose’ in the domestic markets of LMICs.
1.19 Assemble and launch a Food Safety Toolkit which would comprehensively address food safety improvement, focusing on informal markets in LMICs, through a suite of information, training material, assessment guides, monitoring and evaluation guides, intervention options, incentives, communication, and engagement material.
