In the follow-up to the September 2021 United Nations Food Systems Summit, the UN Secretary-General along with leadership and staff from several agencies across the UN system have created a Food Systems Coordination Hub. “The Hub” serves as a central point in charge of maintaining the momentum, building on, and advancing the deliverables that have emerged out of the two-year summit process.
The Hub is hosted by FAO on behalf of the UN system and led by the Director of FAO’s Office of SDGs, Mr. Stefanos Fotiou. The strategic work, decision-making, and engagement of the Hub is steered by an Oversight Steering Group comprising the Principals of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), the UN Development Coordination Office (UN DCO), the World Food Programme (WFP) and the UN Task Force Leads, with participation from the UN Deputy Secretary-General (DSG).
The Food Systems Dialogues Gateway is publishing this information note on behalf of The Executive Office of the Secretary-General to inform Member States and key partners on how the UN System will engage in accelerating the implementation of the 2030 Agenda.
