Independent Dialogue organised in Nigeria
CAFS and CSAYN presents UN FOOD SYSTEMS INDEPENDENT DIALOGUE
Food systems in Nigeria are highly crucial in ensuring sustainable production and supply of food that are safe, affordable and also accessible to her teeming population. The Covid-19 pandemic coupled with the climatic disruption experienced in 2020 posed enough threats to the food system across the value chain especially the small scale farmers production, processing and access to market which resulted in hike in food prices. Thus, there is an urgent need to address better, inclusive and sustainable food systems in Nigeria.
The dialogue aims to bring together top impact leaders, key influencers, multi-stakeholders and dynamic scholars, Public and Private sectors, Non-Governmental and Civil Society Organizations working collectively on improving the food systems in Nigeria. The objective of this event is to spark up critical discussions, inspire, engage, network, connect and also form a formidable partnership that will be based on investing in Food and Nutrition Security leading to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.
The food system is an interdependent and interrelated web which comprises the production, processing, transport, and consumption of food. It is dependent on the participation of stakeholders in the food value chain from the farmers to other players in the system. It is undoubtedly a pertinent resort towards achieving food security, better livelihood, healthy life and balanced economical status of a population.
However, many factors such as climate, natural disasters, government policies, human actions etc. have threatened the sustainability of the food systems in Nigeria for many years. Therefore, it is time we became aware of the adaptive measures towards a better food system.
You could let your opinion/contribution make the desired change as you join us in the dialogue to discuss on “Adaptive approaches for food system sustainability in Nigeria”.
