Panel session with Q&A
Tuesday 20 July 2021
5.30pm – 6.30pm (AEST)
Join us for a UN Food Systems Summit Independent Dialogue, where we put the spotlight on sustainable food and land use systems, and the role Australia can play in supporting climate outcomes.
2021 is a ‘super year’ for global conversations on sustainable food and land use systems.
Right now, global agriculture and food systems are not meeting expectations for sustainability. Yet momentum is building toward a different, more sustainable land use future. There is still time for countries to make ambitious emissions reduction commitments and transform their food and land use systems to achieve climate and sustainability outcomes.
Join our expert panel to explore the role Australia can play in the transition. Our guests are:
- Dr Ellen Litchfield, Farmers for Climate Action
- Megan Flynn, Pollination
- Anna Skarbek, ClimateWorks Australia
with a special message from Paul Polman, co-chair of the global Food and Land Use Coalition, co-founder and chair of IMAGINE and chair of the International Chamber of Commerce.
Your host is John Thwaites, chair of ClimateWorks Australia and the Monash Sustainable Development Institute, and co-chair of the Leadership Council – UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network.
