A Critical Cross-Sector Dialogue to Re-Strategize Food Businesses

This year the UN is marking its 75th Anniversary. The 75th Session of the UN General Assembly (UNGA 75), held on September 15 - 30, at a time of great disruption for the world, was intended to further emphasize the need for cooperation across borders, sectors and generations to determine how fast the world recovers, whether we achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, and how well we handle pressing challenges.

The high-level General Debate opened on September 22 and on the same day the Barilla Center for Food and Nutrition Foundation (BCFN), the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN), the Columbia Center on Sustainable Investment (CCSI), and the Santa Chiara Lab - University of Siena (SCL), launched the new Report of the Fixing the Business of Food initiative, intended to present solutions to support the private sector in the transition towards sustainable agri-food systems.

Businesses can make a strong contribution to more sustainable, equitable and secure food systems and investors are increasingly showing interest in companies that operate in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement on climate change.

On September 22, the online event "Fixing the Business of Food - A Critical Cross-Sector Dialogue to Re-Strategize Food Businesses" was held to promote a global debate on the evidence for transformation. Representatives from business, finance, institutions and academia further underlined the importance of a shared commitment of all actors to resetting the current paradigms.
