Sustainable Food Systems Programme
Tools by the SFS Programme
The Sustainable Food Systems Programme has developed a suite of tools aimed at supporting the shift towards sustainable food systems.
These resources are aimed at encouraging and guiding countries and other stakeholders to expand their knowledge and step up their action in addressing food system challenges as a way to advance on their SDGs commitments. The range of tools provides knowledge, guidance and inspiration for the urgent need to transform food systems by applying a systems perspective.
e-Learning course on Sustainable Food Systems by FAO in collaboration with the SFS Programme
The SFS Programme developed a free series of three e-learning courses on Sustainable Food Systems (SFS), designed to equip you with the knowledge and tools required to apply systems thinking to complex food systems challenges in an integrated manner.
The course series highlights how systems thinking, and taking a sustainable food systems approach, can help to significantly improve our work in project and policy design for sustainable food systems development and transformation.
The courses, that are also certified through the online digital badge system, are now available online, free of charge, as a global public good, through the FAO elearning Academy:
- Sustainable food systems: An introduction
- Sustainable food systems: Concept and framework
- Sustainable food systems: Operationalizing the approach
The three e-learning courses aim to equip food systems stakeholders - particularly practitioners and policymakers - with the knowledge, tools, skills and competencies to apply systems thinking to complex food systems challenges. It emphasizes how systems thinking and taking a sustainable food systems approach helps to significantly improve our work in terms of project and policy design for sustainable food systems development and transformation. It is one of the SFS Programme’s broader set of tools aimed at supporting the shift towards sustainable food systems.
