Many drivers are in place which pull humankind away from a world combining these two virtues. How can research and knowledge redress this trend and how can science policy makers support such efforts?
Whereas ample Research and Innovation in the food system is focused on the second objective, FOODSECURE research underlines that equity and inclusiveness also requires research and innovation.
The purpose of this session is to strengthen the EU’s FOOD 2030 agenda on the equity and inclusiveness dimensions of our global food systems with regard to the following overarching priorities:
- Reducing hunger and malnutrition, addressing food safety and diet-related illnesses, and helping citizens adopt sustainable diets and healthy lives
- Boosting innovation and investment, while empowering communities
- Building climate and global change-resilient food systems
- Implementing sustainability and circular economy principles throughout food systems
After an introduction on “A helpful research and policy frame for global action and governance of FNS” the moderator will invite statements from the panel and actively engage the audience in a Q&A session.
