Developing a Call to Action: Small-scale farmers’ policy priorities

February 10, 2022 6:00 am - 8:00 am CET

(Open to public)

Over the last several months, the SDG2 Advocacy Hub and partners including IISD have been exploring the idea of a call to action or a "new policy consensus," crafted and signed by smallholder farmers organizations, civil society, governments, and international organizations. The call-to-action could contribute to and build on the momentum of the 2021 global summits, align policy priorities, and drive decision making and investment.

The proposed Food Systems Dialogue aims to create a space for smallholder farmers around the world and their organizations to share their insights and priorities. The outcomes of this dialogue will help to inform the new policy consensus.
