I agree with DG, FAO that we need to keep supply chain active.....I would like to cite the example of one of our ms in the time of COVID-19. It was very interesting talk followed by discussion. One of our centre of All India Coordinated research Project on Soil Test Crop Response at Bengaluru, India has done commendable work to keep the supply chain alive amidst COVID-19 with proper precautions, the link of which is given below: https://m.facebook.com/notifications.php?refid=52&ref=m_notif&notif_t=feed_comment_reply#!/story/graphql_permalink/?graphql_id=UzpfSTEwMDAwMDMzMTkxMjUyMDozMDk5NzQxMzMzMzgwMjMz

To keep Food Systems working in favor of most vulnerable people, is not only to focus on commodities. Protect the biodiversity to have a culturally appropriate food is Key. Could saher your thoughts about this?

The Global Agriculture and Food Security Program (GAFSP) is a multi-lateral program with an innovative governance structure involving civil society, the FAO and others that is crucial for reaching the most vulnerable countries impacted by COVID19. Will the US Congress renew US support for this key effort?

While the world looks forward to feeding 10 billion people in 2050, New Agricultural Framework is needed to ensure world food supplies in a largely effective manner. Projecting past agricultural practices into the future offers a recipe for failure; in this respect, building robust Inter-Sectoral Partnerships, ensuring proper Management, promoting Operational Research alongside Scaling-up Innovations towards Industrial Applications, and increasing the efficiency of Natural Resources through adopting new practices and technologies for land, energy and water conservation is an urgent need to secure Sustainable Food Systems for many decades to come.Patrick Cortbaoui, Managing Director, Institute for Global Food Security, McGill University, Canada

Doug Hertzler, Ph.D. Senior Policy Analyst ActionAid USA Washington DC. This question is for Senator Durbin as well, The Global Agriculture and Food Security Program (GAFSP) is a multi-lateral program with an innovative governance structure involving civil society, the FAO and others that is crucial for reaching the most vulnerable countries impacted by COVID19. Will the US Congress renew US support for this key effort? Its not about shipping agribusiness commodities overseas, its about family farmers cooperatives in other countries working together to strengthen their abilities to get food to territorial markets.

Question for panelists: Governments around the world, in countries rich and poor, are struggling to balance health and economic pressures. This is today's priority policy focus. Understandably. But as we heard, new pressures are growing. Question: what would be the single most important message panelists would want governments to hear to avoid tomorrow’s overriding problem being failing food systems? Thank you.Richard Trenchard, proudly leading FAO’s policy team in the Near East and North Africa, based in Cairo, Egypt.

While appreciating the attention being given to the issue of availing food to all people globally today and tomorrow, I like to ask if it is also important to consider simultaneously the issue of food safety and quality which I believe is currently an important issue as related to public health and wellbeing at large.
Jessica Landman
01:30:05
Jessica Landman, Council Fire consultancy - do you have data on the impact on nutrition from fisheries (wild caught and aquaculture)? The fisheries sector has been reporting major disruptions to supply chains.
Becky Murphy
01:31:29
Question for all on the panel – Rebecca Murphy ActionAid International. International Humanitarian and Resilience Team - Global Resilience Adviser.Director Gen Qu Dongyu briefly mentioned gender inequality – I would like to ask how FAO, the presenters and the #fightfoodcrises campaign are thinking about and addressing gender inequality as a driver of risk as we try to prepare for and prevent this third wave impact of COVID19 and the risk of a hunger catastrophe.

Russ Webster, Food Enterprise Solutions, here. Thanks very much for these useful and insightful comments. I’d like to ask FAO to elaborate on its vision and plan for addressing the “capital gap” in strengthening supply chains. Mobilizing capital - both for public sector investments in needed energy and transport infrastructure, as well as private sector investments in post-harvest businesses - is a major need in building a commercially-viable and sustainable food supply chains. What is FAO’s vision and plan - as the major global institutional actor in promoting food security and food systems development - for bringing greater attention to this gap in capital needed to strengthen these systems?

Very interesting presentations. It would have been good to also say that both COVID-19 and its impact reflect the distortions of the prevailing economic development approach. It will be essential to ensure that food systems are reoriented to ensure resilience and that priority be given to territorial development in the context of Agenda 2030. It is also important to acknowledge the role of cities in responding to the crisis and the need to support and learn from their efforts.

@ Jeanette Tramhel: FAO's Food Price Monitoring and Analysis has excellent price information (www.fao.org/giews/food-pricesHeadlines include reports that: Disruptions to food supply chains and stronger demand triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic continued to underpin food price increases in April in several countries - Export prices of maize plummeted on account of large global supplies and weaker demand for biofuel and animal feed - Export prices of rice increased following temporary export restrictions and logistical bottlenecks in some exporting countries

There is indeed a lot of innovation at local level. There is a major need for appropriate infrastructure in rural areas (digital solutions, storage and processing faciltiies)
