FP Virtual Summit: Food+
Solutions for a Food-Secure Future
Watch Day 1 (Dec. 2, 2020):
Watch Day 2 (Dec. 3, 2020):
Tune in to Foreign Policy’s Food+ Summit, a high-level digital convening which spotlighted actions at the country and global level to combat hunger, support access to healthy nutrition and promote a more sustainable global food supply.
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought into sharp focus existing challenges to food and nutrition security around the world while also revealing vulnerabilities in local and global food systems. According to the UNFAO, more than 820 million people across the world are already suffering from chronic hunger. In many countries, particularly in the Middle East and Sub-Saharan Africa, hunger and malnutrition have been on the rise for the past three years due to conflicts, climate change and worsening inequality. At the same time, the livelihoods of many communities and regional economies also depend on a global food system that is vulnerable to geopolitical and other external shocks: Market volatility, disruptions in international supply chains and trade can cause price spikes and hurt agriculture-based incomes.
As the coronavirus crisis continues to unfold, world leaders, industry experts and stakeholders share diverse views and frontline insights on how they’ve responded to the pandemic and the implications for agricultural resilience, food security, and food policy. What are the main threats and what opportunities or solutions are emerging in this crisis to ensure sustainable food supplies for the future?
