ACTION TRACKS: SOLUTION CLUSTERS
Between December 2020 and May 2021, a number of public fora, online consultations and calls for submissions were organised by the 5 UN Food Systems Summit Action Tracks, that resulted in more than the 2,200 ideas and submissions. Inputs were shared by all Summit actors and constituencies, from representatives of national (and subnational) governments to civil society, youth, food producers, research and academia, indigenous peoples, the private sector, UN system organisations and other development partners. These were assessed and consolidated into a smaller number of game-changing propositions, integrated across 15 Action Areas with the participation of the Summit’s 4 cross-cutting levers of change (Gender, Human Rights and Law, Finance and Innovation), and clustered thematically into solution clusters.
These Solution Clusters bring together, under a vision and objectives to achieve specific SDG targets, a menu of possible actions, which, if undertaken by committed actors joining forces across sectors and stakeholder categories, can support countries make major strides in their national pathways towards more sustainable food systems.
These Solution Cluster pages present the work to date, which has benefitted from the commitment of dedicated Solution Cluster Working Groups, under the guidance of Action Area leads and Action Track Chairs, and the individual and group feedback from various Summit workstreams.
