2020 ANNUAL GENERAL ASSEMBLY [ID: 564]

Strengthening Coordination Towards SDG2: Pathways For Food Systems Transformation.

Held in November 2020, the selected theme for the 2020 Annual General Assembly (AGA), “Pathways for Food Systems Transformation” opened a discussion on what processes are needed at local, national, regional and global levels to underpin food systems transformation, and the role that donors can play in catalyzing and supporting such processes. The outcomes from the AGA sessions are being used to develop a Platform preparatory contribution for the Food Systems Summit, which will assess the ways donors currently support and invest in food systems and identify options for strengthening or changing these in the context of the wider agenda for food systems transformation.

About us [ID: 3]

The Global Donor Platform for Rural Development is a network of 40 bilateral and multilateral donors, international financing institutions, intergovernmental organizations, development agencies and foundations.

In 2021, the Platform adopted its new vision which advocates for a radical transformation of food systems, for better access to safe and nutritious food, improved environmental sustainability and more prosperous rural communities. Pathways to achieve ‘zero hunger’ must be economically, socially and environmentally sustainable, centred on the capacity of agriculture and rural livelihoods to generate economic growth and job creation, to address inequalities and to underpin national, regional and global food and nutrition security.
