Towards a sustainable food system: the EU's role in the global transition


Working independently of the European Commission’s Scientific Advice Mechanism, a high-level expert panel of the UN’s Committee on Food Security has recently delivered evidence-based policy advice on how to transition to a more sustainable food system, and thus work towards the Sustainable Development Goals. Although the SAM focuses on the EU and the UN covers the whole globe, the conclusions reached and the recommendations provided are unequivocal: a transformation of our food system is necessary, and there is a broad scientific consensus on how to achieve this.

Through a moderated discussion between key speakers from the UN and the SAM, this webinar will explore the key recommendations made to achieve a more sustainable food system, and discuss the particular role of the EU in this global transition.

This webinar is part of a series of “sustainable food systems webinars” of SAPEA
