Independent Regional Food Systems Dialogue Series

Leveraging the momentum of the Food Systems Summit, the ASEAN Climate Resilience Network (ASEAN-CRN), in partnership with the Global Alliance for Climate-Smart Agriculture (GACSA) and UN FAO Regional Asia Pacific Office (FAO-ROAP), will convene a three-part Independent Summit Dialogue series to give stakeholders from the ASEAN region an opportunity to contribute to designing climate-friendly food systems of the future, and to explore how they can work together to make the transformations happen in the coming decade.

The ASEAN-CRN Regional Food Systems Dialogue will bring together food systems experts and farmers, private sector and policy leaders as they explore, debate and then shape pathways to sustainable food systems that will inform the ASEAN region’s contributions to the 2021 UN Food Systems Summit.

The Dialogue is designed to facilitate engagement guided by the values of sustainable development and informed by both science and experience. The event will address key sustainable development challenges and explore opportunities for collaborative partnerships. The ASEAN-CRN Dialogue offers a purposeful and organized forum for stakeholders to come together to share their roles in food systems, consider their impacts on others and find new ways to come together in support of the Sustainable Development Goals.

This three-part series explore:

  1. Innovation idea generation to support nature positive sustainable food systems
  2. Connection of the innovation ideas to food systems
  3. Role of ASEAN-CRN as an innovative platform for Food Systems transformation

Independent Summit Dialogues are both an important avenue for citizen engagement and a key part of the Summit process.
