Programme for the UN Food Systems Summit +2 Stocktaking Moment

An overall framing for the UN Food Systems Summit +2 Stocktaking Moment (UNFSS+2) lies around the narrative of “Sustainable food systems for people, planet and prosperity: Diverse pathways in a shared journey”. Starting from this idea, the event served as a make-or-break moment to maintain and generate further momentum on action for food systems transformation in support of SDGs acceleration. To do that, the UNFSS+2 focused on three objectives:

  1. Convene countries and stakeholders to review progress on the commitments to action that were made during the Food Systems Summit and identify successes, enduring bottlenecks and priorities in order to close the implementation gap by effectively and efficiently utilizing the Means of Implementation for food systems transformation;
  2. Socialize the powerful role of sustainable, equitable, healthy and resilient food systems as critical SDG accelerators among  world leaders, national decision-makers and practitioners, and food systems actors;
  3. Advocate for urgent action at scale, building on the latest evidence that sustainable food systems contribute to better and more sustainable outcomes for people, planet and prosperity leaving no one behind, by sharing concrete cases of transformation action led by state and non-state actors;

By achieving these objectives, the UNFSS+2 provided evidence that Member States, Stakeholders, the UN and the global Food Systems Ecosystem of Support are "walking the talk of the Food Systems Summit."

The event included a high-level opening segment, three high-level-sessions during the opening day, four plenary sessions, several leadership dialogues, special events and side events, as well as a high-level closing session. The high-level opening saw the participation of the UN Secretary-General, the Prime Minister of Italy and a group of select Heads of States and governments. The programme of the UNFSS+2 evolved around the following storyline and materialized through 3+1 streams of sessions as follows:

  • Plenary Sessions (including the high-level opening and high-level-sessions)
  • Leadership Dialogues
  • Special Events
  • Side events
