True Value of Food: A call to action to solve climate change and other global crises
Transforming food systems is critical to address climate change and other global crises. At this event, the True Value of Food Initiative – launched at the United Nations Food Systems Summit and allied to the UN Food Systems Coordination Hub – will announce a Call to Action to governments across the globe to make healthy, sustainable, affordable food the new normal by committing to increasing the True Value of Food.
True Value of Food: A Call to Action to Solve the Climate Crisis will feature international experts sharing strategies for governments to effectively address climate change and other global challenges by creating food systems that deliver affordable, sustainable, healthy, and fairly produced food to its citizens. This food systems transformation can be achieved by first assessing the true cost and unrealized benefits of current approaches — a practice known as True Cost Accounting (TCA) — and using this knowledge to invest in approaches that enhance the True Value of Food.
Session participants will hear case studies on the tools, policies, and practices gaining traction around the world that enable governments to support this Call to Action.
