As a continuation of efforts that began in 2020 to support the United Nations’s Secretary-General’s Food Systems Summit, we are very pleased to support the United Nations Food Systems Coordination Hub for fruitful Food Systems National Convenors Engagement in the 2023 Stocktaking Moment and successful leveraging of the Sustainable Development Goals Summit and Climate COP28.
This collaboration enables us at 4SD Foundation to build on our extensive experience of accompanying countries in the design of dialogues and accompanying countries in the steering of national multisectoral, multistakeholder and multilevel efforts towards transformative outcomes.
The UN Food Systems Coordination Hub
Led by Stefanos Fotiou with the support of an Oversight Steering Group, the Food Systems Coordination Hub’s mission is to serve countries through systemic, country-driven, customized support in translating their commitments into effective actions to reach sustainable food systems by 2030, leveraging the wider UN system’s capacities.
The 2023 Stocktaking Moment
The 2023 Stocktaking Moment (STM) will take place in Rome 24-26 July 2023, and will be a critical milestone to assess preliminary progress nearly two years post Summit. The event plays a key role in sustaining the momentum for equitable resilient sustainable food systems in countries and globally, as well as to emphasize Sustainable Food Systems’ contribution to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030.
Preparations for the 2023 Stocktaking Moment
The quality and inclusiveness of national preparations towards the STM, including consultations, progress reviews in relation to national pathways, sharing of lessons learned, achievements, and challenges, will directly impact the overall quality and success of the STM and its outcomes, setting the direction for the next biennium 2023-2025.
