Coalitions of Action

Coalitions are groups of organisations and/or institutions (State and/or non-State actors) developed in the context of the UN Food Systems Summit and assembled to challenge business as usual and champion an integrated, systemic approach at scale to address specific issue related to food systems. In each case, the coalition members’ priority is to catalyse the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by supporting national pathways for food systems transformation by 2030. 

They commit to doing so in line with the principles, targets, and indicators of the 2030 Agenda. While coalitions are self-organising and independent, the Food Systems Summit leadership encouraged them to be:

  • Country-driven
  • Systemic and transformative
  • Inclusive and based on coordination
  • Accountable
  • Action-oriented



The Hub is currently working with 28 coalitions to support food systems transformations. We are not directing the actions of the independent coalitions, but rather serving as a connector and knowledge management point for the coalitions. We will assist to connect coalitions with the countries for accelerating food systems transformative actions.
