Catalysing Food Systems Transformations: The Food Systems Window of the UN Joint SDG Fund

Agriculture field

The UN Joint SDG Fund is the flagship fund for sustainable development that drives the acceleration of the SDG, while facilitating broader UN Development System reform. The Fund’s new Strategy for 2023-2026 identifies Food Systems as one of the key transformative entry points to bring the SDGs back on track towards 2030.

This high-level advocacy moment will provide the opportunity to the Deputy Secretary-General, H.E Amina J. Mohammed, to present the Food Systems Window in light of efforts to ‘rescue the SDGs’ and reshape the global finance architecture. It will also offer Member States, the UN, and prominent food systems finance actors the space for a relaxation on how complementary, interrelated initiatives and perspectives can leverage the UN Joint SDG Fund Window to stimulate faster, broader and deeper systemic transformations.

Speakers include:

  • Helena Wright, Policy Director, FAIRR Initiative

  • Roy Steiner, Senior Vice-President, Rockefeller Foundation, Food initiative

  • Michael Keller, Chair, Private Sector Mechanism to the UN Committee on World Food Security

  • Cindy McCain, Executive Director, World Food Programme

  • Maximo Torero Cullen, FAO Assistant Director-General
