Food Systems Solutions Webinars 

Since its inception in April 2022, the UN Food Systems Coordination Hub has been convening multiple virtual dialogues dedicated to peer-learning on food systems transformation. National Convenors and the broad ecosystem of support have been highly engaged in these dialogues, calling for the expansion of topics and thematic areas discussed. To scale knowledge diffusion and enhance science-policy-society interfaces, the Hub will host a series of Food Systems Solutions Webinars (FSS Webinars). These FSS Webinars are open to the public and will act as a platform for peer-exchange, capacity-development and strategic communication among Hub partners and engaged citizens.

The webinars are open meetings addressing government organizations, non-state actors, the UN system and other international organizations, non-for-profit organizations, private sector and other actors working on food system issues.

For 2023, the following four themes have been selected for an equivalent number of webinars. Each FSS Webinar will be 1-hour (60mins), held in English and hosted over Zoom. Each session will include keynote speech(es), panel discussion(s) and an interactive Q and A.
