This 49th Session of the Committee on World Food Security (CFS) virtual side-event will shine a light on emerging coalitions, evidence and policy actions to advance the strongly interconnected themes of agroecology and agricultural biodiversity, as pathways to transform food systems towards increased food security, nutrition, and sustainability. In a landmark year with the negotiations of the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF) of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), growing commitments on achieving Land Degradation Neutrality (LDN), and the CFS’ Policy Recommendations on Agroecological and other Innovative Approaches, this event will discuss common strategies to advance these frameworks through synergies and collaborative action, evidence mobilization, enabling policies and increased resources for food systems transformation.
The session is delivered in partnership by Agroecology Fund, Alliance Bioversity-CIAT, Biovision Foundation, Global Alliance for the Future of Food, IPES-Food, Laurier Centre for Sustainable Food Systems, UNESCO Chair on Food, Biodiversity, and Sustainability Studies, Switzerland, and WWF International.
