    Pathways for the future of Sustainable Food Systems in the Mediterranean.
    Independent Food Systems Summit Dialogues convened by FAO, CIHEAM, UfMS, One Planet Network’s Sustainable Food Systems Programme and PRIMA Foundation
    2021

    This note illustrates the concept behind the two Independent Food Systems Summit Dialogues co-organized by FAO, CIHEAM, UfMS, One Planet Network SFS Programme and PRIMA Foundation that will take place on 27 April and 3 June 2021. In line with the Summit's vision, principles and Action Tracks, these two events aim at highlighting collaborative and science-based pathways leading to the transformation of food systems in the Mediterranean towards the achievement of the SDGs. These dialogues foresee the active involvement and engagement of a wide diversity of stakeholders, coming together to jointly identify concrete and cross-cutting solutions to face Mediterranean-specific challenges by means of a Sustainable Food Systems silos-breaking approach. The two Dialogues are co-organized within the framework of the FAO/CIHEAM/UfMS MoU, the FAO/PRIMA MoU, and project GCP/INT/748/ITA. They will contribute to promoting food systems transformation in the Mediterranean, in line with the "4 Betters" of the new strategic framework of FAO. These dialogues are bringing together key partners in the Mediterranean region and are foreseen to set the stage for the inception of a multi-stakeholder initiative for SFS in the Mediterranean co-led by FAO, CIHEAM and UfM.

    At the 13th Conference of the Parties (COP13) to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), held in December 2016 in Cancun/Mexico, the Parties called for the mainstreaming of biodiversity across all agricultural sectors and adopted the Cancun Declaration on Mainstreaming the Conservation and Sustainable Use of Biodiversity for Well-Being1. Concurrently, in late 2016, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) offered to act as the Biodiversity Mainstreaming Platform2 (the Platform), aiming at facilitating the dialogue and the exchange of information between governments and other stakeholders in regards to the sustainable use, management and restoration of biodiversity across agricultural sectors (including crop and livestock production, forestry, fisheries and aquaculture). As the first major activity of acting as the Biodiversity Mainstreaming Platform, FAO organized in Rome, Italy, the Multi-Stakeholder Dialogue in Biodiversity Mainstreaming across Agricultural Sectors (the Dialogue), between the 29th and the 31st of May 2018. The event was co-organized with the CBD Secretariat and brought together roughly 250 experts and representatives from diverse stakeholder groups. As a follow-up, FAO with the support of the Government of Rwanda and in collaboration with the African Union Commission and other partners including the CBD Secretariat, the African Union Development Agency (AUDA-NEPAD) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) Regional Office for Africa is proposing to organize an African Regional Dialogue on Biodiversity Mainstreaming across Agricultural Sectors (the Regional Dialogue), which will take place from the 4 to the 5 November 2019 in Kigali, Rwanda.

    Food systems transformation – Processes and pathways in the Mediterranean
    A stocktaking exercise

    As part of the global Food Systems Summit process, countries and stakeholders across the Mediterranean convened several Summit Dialogues, which allowed to reflect on the Summit’s objectives, explore the challenges faced in Mediterranean food systems, and exchange about strategic pathways to enable a sustainable transition. Building on this momentum, an analytical review of the outcomes of part of these dialogues was performed, in order to take stock of common challenges, priorities, and opportunities, and to provide support to countries and stakeholders across the Mediterranean region in further developing and implementing pathways towards sustainable food systems. The stocktake presents a set of thematic areas common to most countries in the region (“what to transform”), as well as a number of potential means of implementation (“how to transform”) that were found to be instrumental to generate transformative change, and have the potential to drive regional collaboration for accelerating the shift towards more sustainable food systems. To keep the momentum created by the Summit and the related national processes, possible next steps are proposed to leverage the transformative power of food systems, including the finalization and implementation of national pathways, the promotion of inclusive governance structures, and the development of cross-national and regional collaborations. In this setting, FAO, CIHEAM and UfM launched an initiative to engage with countries and stakeholders in the Mediterranean, providing a forum for dialogue and multi-stakeholder exchange, dedicated support for the co-creation of flagship projects and investment proposals, opportunities for regional cooperation on data sharing, science diplomacy and innovation.
