Please review the details below for registration information if available or contact the Convenor if you would like to attend.
Join us for an Independent Dialogue convened by the International Water Management Institute (IWMI) and partners to discuss water-energy-food (WEF) nexus approaches to achieve food systems transformation in Southern Africa, in a regional multi-stakeholder forum, the output of which will be presented to the United Nations Food System Summit (UNFSS). Transforming #foodsystems is among the most powerful ways to make progress towards all 17 #SDGS. This dialogue will unpack how food systems can be localized and transformed in a water-constrained region such as Southern Africa in a manner that acknowledges WEF nexus linkages and promotes regional trade.
The session is designed to be interactive, allowing for small group discussion, collective brainstorming, and agenda-setting. As the region maps out the road to UNFSS 2021, this Dialogue will focus on the role of water and energy in food systems transformation. Speakers and panellists from across the world and the region will discuss how systems transformation for food and water security in Southern Africa can be achieved.
We invite everyone working to advance transformative water, energy and food systems to join this Dialogue.
