The food system faces multiple threats. The economic downturn, regional conflicts, extreme weather, natural resource degradation, crop and animal diseases have already challenged food security. The outbreak of COVID-19 made the global food system even more vulnerable. With these complex challenges and future uncertainties, it is essential to improve the resilience of China’s food systems and reshape the current food system in China. This requires all sectors of society to engage, collaborate, and take action.
This independent dialogue brings together multiple participants from the food supply chain. Stakeholders will communicate, share their experiences of food systems, propose ways of building a more sustainable food system and explore opportunities for different forms of collaboration.
