World Food Day Conference 2022 Solution-Oriented Dialogue around Leave No One Behind and Absorbing the Shocks: Climate Change and Food Security

Johannesburg, South Africa: SABC Education, The Food, Agriculture and Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network (FANRPAN), the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), and vikela earth are jointly organising the virtual World Food Day Conference 2022. The Conference aims to support the credo of  “Absorbing the Shocks on Climate Change and Food Security”.

The Conference will be looking at how to transform into a world free of hunger, through a critical review of investments in research and development for innovation, the governance of resources, healthier diets and more sustainable production, stronger value chains, inclusion and social protection, and climate-smart finance.

In the face of the current global crises, global solutions are more important than ever. By aiming for better production, better nutrition, a better environment, and a better life, we can transform agrifood systems and implement sustainable and holistic solutions that allow for development in the long term, inclusive economic growth, and greater resilience. A sustainable world is one where everyone counts.  Food security is imperative for human survival with dignity.

The Virtual Conference will be held on Tuesday, 25th October 2022 from 15:00 – 17:00 CAT and is free and open to anyone wishing to attend. The registration link can be found here: ​​

The programme includes an impressive line-up of speakers and a diverse panel of subject matter experts. (should we include all of these….)
