OBJECTIVE AND EXPECTED OUTCOMES

It is now widely acknowledged that food systems need to transform across
the globe to better serve societal needs and achieve the Sustainable
Development Goals. Many call for new paradigms and multi-stakeholder
collaboration to develop new knowledge and support innovation that can
result in systemic change. The science-policy interface is a key
component of the innovation capacity of a food system. In this side event,
various stakeholders will reflect on their experiences with various sciencepolicy
interfaces and share their lessons learnt on questions such as:
What capacities are needed to address policy issues and engage with
policy makers? How to develop interactions between research and policy?
What is the right level of interaction with policy makers? The session will
finish with a joint reflection on required strategies and actions to further
strengthen the science-policy interface in food systems.
