Changing Route: Common Action on Food Systems Transformation in the Mediterranean | CIHEAM Press Review | Scoop.it

The Coronavirus pandemic has revealed the fragility of our food systems, affecting all dimensions of food security and nutrition across the world. It has highlighted how deeply our world is interconnected and the importance of better recognising and understanding the interconnections that are intrinsic to these systems and their key role in pursuit of the SDGs of the 2030 Agenda. There is now, more than ever, a stronger need for a “route change” towards a common action on food systems transformation.

What Are the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN?

What Are the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN? | CIHEAM Press Review | Scoop.it

As we well know by now, climate change and other environmental issues are not any one person’s concern. They are all of our concerns. That’s why recent coverage of climate change has been calling for international cooperation on all sides. It’s not America’s issue; it’s not the UK’s issue. The scope of climate change and threats to our environment are much greater than that: It’s an international issue.

CONCORD calls for a sustainable common agricultural policy

CONCORD calls for a sustainable common agricultural policy | CIHEAM Press Review | Scoop.it

Initially developed in the early sixties, the EU Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) has undergone several waves of reforms – the latest one of which was decided in 2013 and implemented in 2015. Since then, the context has changed significantly. Against this new background, the European Commission believes that “the CAP must be modernised, simplified, and made even more coherent with other EU policies to maximise its contribution to the ten Commission Priorities and the Sustainable Development Objectives.” The Commission thus decided to carry out a public consultation on the simplification and modernisation of the CAP.

THE STATE OF FOOD SECURITY AND NUTRITION IN THE WORLD 2020

This year, the report includes a special focus on transforming food systems for affordable healthy diets. It analyses the cost and affordability of healthy diets around the world, by region and in different development contexts. New analysis is presented on the “hidden” health and climate-change costs associated with our current food consumption patterns, as well as the cost savings if we shift towards healthy diets that include sustainability considerations. The report also offers policy recommendations to transform current food systems and make them able to deliver affordable healthy diets for all – crucial to all efforts to achieve Zero Hunger – SDG2.

Silicon Valley Insider: The Intersection of Food and Gender

Silicon Valley Insider: The Intersection of Food and Gender | CIHEAM Press Review | Scoop.it

When examining the Sustainable Development Goals of The United Nations; zero hunger, responsible production, and climate action are three of the main focal points. In order to take on these goals, we can focus on food loss on farms.
 On top of the environmental impact, there are also societal implications. There is a layered relationship with small-hold farmers and food loss.
Smallholder farmers produce more than 80% of the food required by developing countries. These farmers have a difficult time securing capital in order to build a more robust and sustainable supply chain, but the issue deepens when these farmers are women.

WHY AGRICULTURAL BUSINESSES ARE ENGINES OF SUSTAINABLE GROWTH

WHY AGRICULTURAL BUSINESSES ARE ENGINES OF SUSTAINABLE GROWTH | CIHEAM Press Review | Scoop.it
he majority of the world’s extremely poor—about 800 million people—depend almost entirely on agriculture for their livelihoods. Smallholder farmers produce much of the world’s food, yet are highly vulnerable to hunger, financial hardship, and climate shocks. So when UN Member States adopted a set of goals aimed at ending poverty, protecting the planet, and ensuring prosperity for all by 2030, it made sense that agriculture featured prominently among them. And agricultural businesses are key in reaching those goals.
