Achieving Equitable Access to Good Food (live stream)
Format: Interactive Panel and Q&A

Sharing global perspectives on the need for equitable access to good food and the mechanisms to achieve it
Fair access to good food is under severe strain – with supply chains affected by COVID-19, food production affected by the war in Ukraine and climate change affecting productivity, particularly in countries of the Global South. Responding to the urgent need for fairer access to good food therefore needs political and economic responses as much as technical and ecological. This multi-disciplinary panel will identify how key challenges affecting access to good food in different parts of the world should be responded to. The panel will discuss the need to pay attention to the politics of equity in food production, growing recognition of the importance of nutrient, rather than nutrition, security, and the impacts of changes in diets associated with increasing wealth on human and planetary health.
