Welcome to our discussion on Action Track 5
Many countries and communities and their food systems are hit by shocks from conflict, climate, environmental, natural, health, and economic reasons. It is important that our food systems remain functional during such periods of shock. We also need to ensure universal food access. This builds “resilience”, which means guaranteeing that food reaches everyone, either by market mechanisms, public provision, or civic collective actions for food. And to ensure shock-resilient food systems, we need coordinated actions.
Look at some of the actionable solutions that the UNFSS Action Track process and youth have proposed.
- Universal food access-enacting food as a public good
- Protect food production systems from shocks including climate change, disasters, and conflicts
- Strategic food reserve to smooth consumption shocks
- Community gardens utilizing vertical farming tools for food security
- Diversification of food basket to address climate change
- Acknowledge the true value of food
- Long term conservation of food diversity in gene banks and in the field
