Organiser's description (via FoodTank):

Join the Rockefeller Foundation, WWF, the Global Alliance for the Future of Food, and media partner Food Tank, for Food Day on Sept 20th alongside the UN General Assembly SDG Summit 2023 and Climate Week NYC.

The special Livestream event will offer global framing for the nexus of food and agriculture, climate, nature, health and finance; key challenges; and pathways for a sustainable, equitable and inclusive food system.

Food systems transformation is critical to delivering the shared global agenda for Sustainable Development Goals, the Paris Declaration on climate change and the Montreal-Kunming Global Biodiversity Framework. As world leaders from the public and private sectors gather in New York City for the SDG Summit and UN General Assembly, and activists from around the globe participate in Climate Week, The Rockefeller Foundation, the Global Alliance for the Future of Food and the World Wildlife Fund are convening leading change-makers in food systems to elevate the sense of urgency and raise the level of ambition to accelerate implementation and deliver a healthy, sustainable and equitable future for all.
