WFO Task Force for the UN Food Systems Summit

On 22 December 2020, the WFO Board has mandated the International Secretariat to establish a special task force for the implementation of the Policy on Sustainable Food Systems, which was adopted by the General Assembly last June.
All the facilitators of the WFO Working Groups and Committees have been identified as the best experts available within the Organization and together with the Secretary General and the Policy Department Team will provide guidance, expertise, operational support to ensure that no aspect of the food systems is left uncovered.
It is fundamental that discussions on food systems are solutions-oriented and science-based. That is why the WFO Task Force benefits of the support of two representatives of the WFO Scientific Council.
