Climate Resilient Food Systems for all beyond 2030
WFP/WB/FAO/UNFCCC/UNDRR and others
This Climate-Resilient Food Systems alliance provides a framework for food systems transitions that deliver resilience to climate, shocks and stresses, protect biodiversity and ecosystems’ services, reduce poverty and enhance social, gender, equity and North-South & inter-generational justice. Food systems transitions to long term resilience require multi-sectoral and multi-systemic integrated solutions, innovative water and energy solutions implemented through a Nexus approach, multi-risk reduction and management and ambitious policies and platforms to support climate resilient food systems for all beyond 2030. This calls for strong partnerships and alliances with Member States (MS) and stakeholders, in particular related to innovation (social, technical, financial), to offer bold ideas for cooperative action to take systemic actions at scale. This Alliance will offer a space to follow-up the UNFSS at the national and international level, by supporting the integration of resilience in International and National Policy and Planning and Innovative Initiatives for Food Systems Resilience for all beyond 2030. The main thematic areas under this Alliance are:
- Climate adaptation, mitigation, and resilience
- Integrated Resilience: Restoration, increased biomass and biodiversity
- Water-Food Energy Nexus | Modern/Clean cooking
- Climate Risk Reduction and Risk Management.
- Integrating resilience in international and national policies plans and initiatives.
This Alliance also aims to engage all regions and countries including high-risk and the the most vulnerable regions and countries:
- Small Island Developing States (SIDS) /SIS
- Arid and Semi-Arid Lands /Deserts (e.g., the Sahel)
- Least Developed Countries.
Build Resilience to Vulnerabilities, Shocks, and Stresses
Well-designed and carefully implemented social protection programmes are among the most cost-effective development interventions and an important solution to reaching multiple objectives simultaneously, in alignment with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Consumers who are more empowered and engaged in the future of food systems will have a greater stake in building this future. Our solution is to strengthen the voice of consumers in the development of healthy and sustainable food systems and to reinforce the levers of consumer protection and empowerment as a means for food systems transformation.
The predicament of forced displacement is a common concern of humankind. Displacement situations have increased in scope, scale and complexity and refugees require protection, assistance and solutions.
