Call to action 17 September 2021
A call to adopt 13 principles for transforming food systems
The signatories called upon leaders at the UN Food Systems Summit to adopt the 13 sustainability principles set out by the High-level Panel of Experts on food security and nutrition (HLPE) in a 2019 report on the issue.
They are calling for agroecology and organic and regenerative agriculture to top the agenda at the summit in New York this coming September.
The signatories of the call include CIRAD, WWF International, the US conservation group The Nature Conservancy, Oxfam and West Africa’s ECOWAS bloc, to list just a few.
The Agroecology Transformative Partnership Platform, launched in June at the 48th Plenary of the Committee on World Food Security, is based on these 13 principles. It aims to create the conditions for the adoption of transformative agroecological approaches.
