Transforming food systems after COVID-19

Transforming food systems after COVID-19

This report from the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) explores what the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and government responses mean for the effort to transform food systems to be more healthy and sustainable. 

The report’s recommendations include:

  • Use lessons learned from the pandemic to steer the food system towards being more resilient, healthy and sustainable.
  • Use events planned for 2021 (including the UN Food Systems Summit, COP26 and the Nutrition for Growth Summit) to put food systems transformation on the development agenda.
  • Expand social protection policies to protect vulnerable populations during economic, health or environmental crises.
  • Seek innovative methods of financing food systems transformation, including support for impact investment and redirection of public funding.
