Strengthening Global Food Systems

The Strengthening Global Food Systems project seeks to provide insight and support action toward more inclusive, sustainable, efficient and nutritious food systems, in line with the Sustainable Development Goals. This project sits within the System Initiative on Shaping the Future of Food, a leading effort credited by Harvard University and others as a pioneer in driving change in food systems through system leadership in multistakeholder and market-led approaches. The project will strengthen leaders' decision-making, provide a platform for coordinated action, and drive greater innovation in the agriculture sector, including through Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies by: 


  • Developing new insights on global food systems, including through the Innovation with a Purpose workstream which focuses on how technology and innovation can be leveraged to address challenges in food systems

  • Facilitating multistakeholder dialogues related to food systems transformation

  • Mobilizing leadership and expertise to achieve agriculture-sector transformation through the Transformation Leaders Network which engages over 150 action leaders and experts to exchange knowledge, best practices, and experience across regions and sectors. The Network aims to enhance the positive impacts of New Vision for Agriculture-affiliated partnerships, promote leadership development and strengthen multi-stakeholder collaboration.
