Session format: Innovative session
Through a ‘fishbowl’ discussion, this session facilitates a discussion among researchers, practitioners and policymakers on the necessary steps towards more sustainable and equitable food systems in the Global South, with a focus on land-related interventions. We invite four panellists to share their work and lessons learnt on ways towards fair and sustainable food systems in the Global South, highlighting the role of land-based investment flows, business models, the underestimated role of small-scale farmers, and the language used to frame food and land issues. Next, we invite anyone from the audience to take part in the discussion. Ultimately, the aim of the session is to contribute to the deliberations of the UN Food Systems Summit: what may not be overlooked when working towards just and sustainable food systems?
