In the lead up to the 2021 UN Food Systems Summit, the Global Action Network, Sustainable Food from the Oceans and Inland Waters for Food Security and Nutrition will hold a series of three Independent Dialogues in an effort to include aquatic foods as key solutions for food and nutrition security. The events, co-hosted by the Norwegian leadership of the Global Action Network and WorldFish, aim to bridge the UN Decade of Action on Nutrition and the Decade of Ocean Science to deliver on the Sustainable Development Goals.
This Independent Dialogue was put together by a task force, including representants from WorldFish, IFAD and The Netherlands, and led by Norway. Norway and WorldFish will jointly arrange the webinars technically.
In this second dialogue, cross sectorial representatives, including high level, will come together to showcase possible solutions and discuss important actions for food systems transformation with aquatic foods as part of the summit’ s Action Track 3, which aims to boost nature-positive production. The panelists will take a holistic approach, combining knowledge on different aspects of food and nutrition security (access for all to sufficient, safe, nutritious foods, meeting dietary needs, food preferences) and discuss scaling up sustainable production solutions of aquatic foods as a provider of the nutrients we need at lower environmental costs, and as a provider of livelihoods.
