Convened by thirteen co-organizers, including civil society, academia and the private sector, the Bold Actions for Food as a Force for Good is a pre-event to the UN Food Systems Summit (FSS) to take place in fall 2021.
The Finance Lever of the UN Food Systems Summit aims to turn finance from a constraint into an enabler of food systems transformation. All too often, finance is identified as one of the main impediments for food systems transformation, but by mobilizing innovative and scalable sources of public, private and blended finance, including de-risking high impact projects, finance can unlock the implementation of the various action tracks of the UN Food Systems Summit 2021. The goals of this session are to explore innovative approaches to financing food system transformation as well as learning about best practices and initiatives that are already happening on the ground. The session offers strategic input as the finance lever is developed.
