The dialogue of 11 Jan 2021 was the first Food Systems Dialogue to take place within the SAFIN network. It was convened at the invitation of the U.N. Special Envoy for the Food Systems Summit (FSS) with the following objectives:
1. To inform SAFIN partners about the FSS, so they can reflect on what opportunities and expectations this brings for the network;
2. To foster clarity about why and how agri-SME finance fits into the FSS agenda, so that the network can focus its engagement and develop a compelling narrative around it;
3. To identify 2-3 priority issues or challenges in agri-SME finance that are critical to address in order
to achieve impact in the FSS Action Tracks;
4. To brainstorm about 2-3 potential “game-changing” actions around these issues or challenges.
