About the programme

The Sustainable Food Systems (SFS) Programme promotes sustainability all along the food value chain, from farm to fork. The Programme brings together existing initiatives and partnerships working in related areas, highlighting good practices and success stories, and builds synergies as well as cooperation among stakeholders to leverage resources towards mutual objectives.

Programme leadership

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.
