On 13 March, the UN Food Systems Coordination Hub held the Arab regional preparatory meeting on the “Food Systems Stocktaking Moment”, scheduled for July.
The meeting, which took place on the sidelines of the Arab Forum for Sustainable Development (AFSD) at the UN House in Beirut, was organized by ESCWA and FAO in collaboration with the League of Arab States (LAS) and other partners.
Countries shared the progress they made in transforming their food systems since the 2021 Food Systems Summit, and discussed best practices, capacity needs and related challenges. Participants also identified priority actions, and proposed key messages for the region to accelerate the transformation of Arab food systems in line with the 2030 Agenda.
