About the programme
The Sustainable Food Systems (SFS) Programme is a multi-stakeholder partnership focused on catalyzing more sustainable food consumption and production patterns. Our shared vision enables our partners to collaborate on joint initiatives, which range from normative, advocacy and policy support activities, to research and development projects as well as on-the-ground implementation activities that address our food systems challenges. The Programme promotes a holistic approach, taking into account the interconnections and trade-offs between all elements and actors in food systems.

Actors of the programme
The Sustainable Food Systems (SFS) Programme was launched in October 2015, as a multi-stakeholder programme to promote SCP patterns in the area of food and agriculture. It is being co-led by South Africa, Switzerland, Hivos and WWF, with the support of a Multi-stakeholder Advisory Committee (MAC) with 23 members from five different stakeholder clusters:
- Government agencies
- Civil society organizations
- Research and technical institutions
- UN agencies and other international organizations
- Private sector
Furthermore, the SFS Programme currently has over 95 partners from all stakeholder groups and around the globe.
