Worldwide more than 800 million people live in hunger, more than 2.000 million people are overweight or obese and almost one-third of the food made for human consumption is lost or wasted. These are just some of the devastating facts that we all have to realize and relate to.
The global food challenges are only solvable if we address and try to deal with them on an international scale. Since 2016, the World Food Summit, hosted by the Danish Minister for Food, Agriculture and Fisheries, has been a yearly global platform for international stakeholders to discuss actionable pathways towards building more sustainable, accountable, and equitable global food systems. Throughout the years, the World Food Summit has highlighted global issues concerning climate change and sustainable development within global food systems.
The latest World Food Summit was held in 2022. The timing of the next World Food Summit is still to be decided. More information will follow.
