Working Group

Support the Implementation of National Pathways


The Working Group (WG) to Support the Implementation of National Pathways was established in late 2021 by the Sustainable Food Systems (SFS) Programme as one of its key actions in support the UN Food Systems Summit (UNFSS) follow-up process.

The UNFSS called for a major transformation of food systems to address the challenges the world faces today. At country level, national governments have developed National Pathways for Food Systems Transformation, reflecting each country’s vision, objectives and actions for transforming its food system.

The WG provides an inclusive environment for open dialogue and knowledge sharing to support the implementation of National Pathways. This includes identifying and sharing best practices, highlighting key areas requiring support, and identifying collaboration opportunities.

Key activities

The main activities carried out by the WG include:

A space for open discussion

Convene working group sessions focusing on sharing information and approaches on support to the implementation of National Pathways to improve practices and results

Mapping ongoing initiatives

Map and share initiatives carried out by the ecosystem of support in assisting countries with their National Pathways implementation. The aim of the mapping is identifying potential collaboration opportunities, avoiding replications and fragmentation, and maximizing synergies and coherence among the various initiatives.
