Recognizing the pivotal role of science, technology and innovation for food systems transformation, the Science Days, organized by the Scientific Group of the UN Food Systems Summit 2021 and facilitated and hosted by FAO, offer an important opportunity to support the agenda setting process with scientific evidence and perspectives. Participants can expect to:

  • Assess science-based options to achieve more healthy diets and more efficient, inclusive, resilient and sustainable food systems.
  • Explore the frontiers of science to catalyze food systems transformation to achieve SDG2.
  • Critically assess risks, opportunities, and controversies in science and innovation for food systems, with attention to equity and to resilience.
  • Engage in dialogues to strengthen the science–policy interface so that scientific evidence can best inform policy and policy in turn can better use science to support the transition to sustainable, inclusive and resilient food systems.

Please join to contribute to the scientific debate on how to transform our food systems and share experiences and insights around science-based actions and solutions.
