2024 Food Systems Transformation Regional Progress Reviews

From February to May 2024, the UN Food Systems Coordination Hub organized five regional meetings with Food Systems National Convenors as a follow-up to the United Nations Food Systems Summit (UNFSS+2) Stocktaking Moment held in Rome in July 2023. The main objectives of these meetings were to assess the progress in transforming food systems, facilitate regional knowledge sharing, and identify emerging patterns and solutions across different regions in response to the UNFSS+2 Call to Action by the UN Secretary-General.

These meetings built upon the discussions from the 2023 Regional Preparatory Meetings and UNFSS+2, and were held in the margins of the Regional Sustainable Development Fora to integrate these regional review processes within broader SDG frameworks, allowing Convenors to network and gain deeper insights into the connections between the SDGs and transitions.

Key takeaways from these meetings guide the Hub and the wider Ecosystem of Support in addressing the needs of the National Convenors.
