(open until 23 November 2020)
The high-level policy event will emphasize the relevance of MDD-W in the broader context of healthy and sustainable diets and food systems transformation.
Presenters will illustrate how MDD-W data can be used for promoting inclusive food security and nutrition policies at national, regional and global level, as well as for tracking the progress on SDGs, the Nutrition for Growth commitments and the UN Food Systems Summit Action Tracks. The objective is to encourage the political support and mobilization of resources for the MDD-W indicator's continued and scaled-up use with the aim to measure progress towards improving diet quality and at the same time raising awareness on gender-specific dietary needs.

The 3rd Global Conference of the Sustainable Food Systems Programme will be held virtually.
The purpose of this 3rd global conference is to to provide substantial input to the UN Food Systems Summit that is tentatively scheduled for the third quarter of 2021, building on the achievements of the SFS Programme’s membership during the first five years of implementation as well as the outcomes of the Programme’s previous two global conferences.
Previous editions of the conference harnessed consensus on a range of priority areas for action. The 1st global conference in South Africa concluded with the Pretoria Resolution, while the 2nd global conference in Costa Rica finalized with the San José Call to Action.
Objectives and outcomes
Following the San José Call to Action of the SFS Programme’s 2nd conference, the objectives of this meeting are:
- To strengthen the common vision that suggests that only through inclusive multi-stakeholder collaboration will we be able to achieve the profound transformation, through a set of key actions and implementation mechanisms, that our food systems require;
- To provide a platform for structured discussion around the science underlying global efforts to characterize and assess progress towards more sustainable food systems;
- and, overall, to raise the political importance of sustainable food systems among public and private sector leaders.
The expected outcomes of the conference are:
- To provide science-based recommendations on the range of actions that can advance food systems transformation within the priority areas identified in the outcome of the 2nd global conference, in contribution to the Action Tracks of the Food Systems Summit 2021; and
- To provide recommendations that can help define the implementation mechanisms (including accountability mechanisms) for such recommended actions.
