Bringing together NGOs, agricultural networks, nutritionists, campaigners, civil society, the private sector and UN agencies to co-ordinate advocacy efforts and achieve SDG2 by 2030.
Hi all, 

I hope you are all well.

We're still buzzing from the many insightful conversations and calls to action from last week’s UN Food Systems Pre-Summit. From bold Member State commitments to discussions that put farmers, Indigenous Peoples and women's voices at the centre, the Pre-Summit saw a diversity of stakeholders committed to moving beyond words and towards bold, ambitious action to transform our food systems, for people and planet. 

Please find below the SDG2 Advocacy Hub August Newsletter. Direct newsletter contributions to Rosie for possible inclusion.

Best wishes,
Good food is everything...

We’re excited to share with you a second compilation video for Good Food For All, touching on the power of good food to bring people and planet together. Join the conversation by creating your own video – here’s how.  Read new article by Harry Bignell highlighting insights into the challenges ahead and what 'good food' advocates. #GoodFood4All #FoodSystems #UNFSS2021


Last week, more than 500 in-person delegates and over 20,000 virtual delegates from 190 countries gathered for the Pre-Summit to discuss how they will transform their national food systems to drive progress against the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. Find below a few highlights. 

Good Food For All

The future of the world depends on good food.
It's that simple.

Nourish the Future

This document outlines how the Biden administration could secure historic victories in the fight to end global malnutrition and child deaths. With broad endorsement from dozens of leaders and organisations across the global health and development space, it is a proposal to scale-up the most lifesaving nutrition interventions in the hardest hit countries with an investment of $887 million per year.

Better business reporting for nutrition

“2021 is a critical year to engage business to contribute to better food systems that reduce rather than increase malnutrition and that address the disastrous nutrition impact of Covid-19.” Check out an article in collaboration with the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition on better business reporting for improved commitments to nutrition.

Women's Nutrition Commitment-making Guide for UNFSS

Exploring a new consensus for farmers food

Good food begins with farmers. With the UNFSS, Nutrition for Growth and Climate COP in 2021, there is a heightened sense of opportunity for coordinated action to improve the health, livelihoods, productivity and sustainability of smallholder farmers. The SDG2 Hub is working with partners to explore the idea of a call to action for a new consensus for smallholder farmers that could contribute to and build on the momentum of these global summits, align policy priorities, drive decision-making and investment, especially as we “build back better” from COVID-19, and support greater coordinated collaboration during this Decade of Action to deliver the SDGs. Watch the Pre-Summit Affiliated Session that discusses a consensus with high-level speakers. Learn more about the consensus here.
