The event is held in collaboration with the Arab Organization for Agriculture Development, the Coalition of Action on Healthy Diets from Sustainable Food Systems for Children and All, the Climate Resilient Food Systems Alliance, the Fighting Food Crises along the HDP Nexus Coalition, and the Social Protection and Food Systems Transformation Coalition, with support from the Government of Sweden.
