Responding to the Food Crisis: Future-Proofing Local Food Systems to be Resilient

Local to Global | Panel

With a growing population projected to reach 8 billion by the end of 2022, there is a deep need to transform our food systems. Simultaneously, our global food systems have been deeply impacted by conflict, climate and the pandemic, exacerbating food insecurity, and driving instability, especially in the Horn of Africa.

This crisis is an opportunity to rebuild these systems in ways that future-proof vulnerable communities from the impacts of climate change, strengthen local communities’ food sovereignty, and break away from vicious cycles of dependency on foreign aid to address immediate needs.

This panel brings together representatives from across the humanitarian development nexus to reflect on the strategies and solutions that transform food systems, in equitable and sustainable ways, that builds climate resilience and creates a better future for the most vulnerable.
