The Government of Nepal has accorded high priority to ensure access to affordable, healthy and nutritious food for all Nepalese citizen. Despite its high effort still full realization of this priority is yet to be achieved. Considering the priority, the UN Food System Summit 2021 is taken an important opportunity for Nepal to examine food systems and to identify pathways for transformation to make it equitable, sustainable and resilient and to achieve the national priority. In line with this, National Planning Commission has organized first National Food System dialogues on the theme “Nepal towards an equitable, resilient and sustainable food system” on 11 June 2021. Following this, Provincial Food System Dialogue is planned in Gandaki Province on 30 June 2021 to examine food system at the province and local levels and identify key issues and ways for transforming it.

Under policy environment, dialogues will take place on Right to Food and Food Sovereignty Act as a means and legal framework to transform food systems in Nepal.
