In preparation for the Food System Summit in September 2021, the government of Nauru organized a Member State dialogue at the national level to engage actors across the local food stems to have the opportunity to contribute to the FSS by discussing their roles within the food system, highlight challenges, vulnerabilities and reflect on novel forms of joint action to shape the pathway to a sustainable food system by 2030.
This exploratory dialogue attempted to holistically analyse the challenges that exist in the local food systems in Nauru in order to raise awareness and propose new forms of joint actions that are drawn from a ‘bottoms up approach’. Constituting to the core of the dialogue, the 5 actions tracks were used to develop and topics and prompt questions that are the most relevant to Nauru’s food system – specifically pertaining to: Consumption patterns/Diet, Nutrition, Food Security (Agriculture & Fisheries), Livelihoods and Resilience to Climate Change.
Reference was also made in the discourse to Nauru’s National Sustainable Development Strategy (NSDS) that is linked to UN agenda 2030 and SDGs; in this national strategy four of the development goals directly relate to food systems.
