FAO, UNHCR and WFP in Geneva will hold a virtual event to celebrate World Food Day 2021. The event will provide the opportunity to highlight ways in which forcibly displaced populations are engaging in local food systems around the world to build their resilience. Building on the momentum of the UN Food Systems Summit held during the UN General Assembly in New York on 23 September 2021, this event will bring together frontline stakeholders and donors. Through showcasing examples from a range of contexts, the event will spotlight how the inclusion of forcibly displaced people into local food systems can contribute to greater food security and socio-economic prosperity for them and their host community.
Join us for a dynamic panel discussion featuring representatives from the Democratic Republic of Congo, Mozambique, South Sudan and Uganda.
