UN: Transforming How We Eat, 'A Critical Accelerator' To SDGs


The UN views such transformation as a critical "accelerator" to achieve its equally fraudulent Sustainable Development Goals. Nevertheless, the UN is striving for a complete upside-down transformation of existing food production. Let them eat bugs. ? TN Editor

Countries will review progress towards transforming food systems worldwide at a three-day meeting in Rome this July, UN Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed and Italy's Deputy Prime Minister announced on Friday, in the Italian capital.

The so-called UN Food Systems Stocktaking Moment is the first global follow-up to a 2021 summit convened to change how the world produces, consumes and thinks about food.

The high-level event falls at the halfway point for achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the 17 Sustainable Development (SDGs), which provide a blueprint for a more fair, equitable and "green" world.

Improving lives and livelihoods

"I am looking forward to Italy's leadership in bringing together stakeholders to create the evidence that food systems transformation is a critical SDGs accelerator," said Ms. Mohammed, stressing that "more sustainable, equitable, healthy and resilient food systems directly impact people's lives and livelihoods as we strive for a better future for people and for the planet."
