WEBINAR: The Collaborative Framework for Food Systems Transformation

Webinar Launch: The Collaborative Framework for Food Systems Transformation

WHEN: 18 June 2019, from 16:00 - 17:00 (CEST Paris time)

RECORDING: You can find the webinar recording here.

DOCUMENT: Read the Framework here.


What is it?

The Collaborative Framework for Food Systems Transformation explains how governments and stakeholders, at national or local levels, can apply a food systems approach to policymaking and implementation. The publication suggests practical and easy-to-follow actions for performing analyses of food systems, expanding or reorienting existing activities, integrating policy interventions, and building effective food systems governance.

The publication is enriched with eight cases studies that provide insight into how the principles and actions discussed in the document have been partially implemented in practice.

The Framework is an output of the One Planet Network Sustainable Food Systems Programme and contributes to the Programme’s objective to support countries to shift towards sustainable food systems, and to comply with international commitments, such as the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

How was it developed?

The FS Framework was conceived in one of the Sustainable Food Systems Programme's core initiaitves, in which several organizations implement on-the-ground work related to the transformation of food systems policy-making and governance to overcome the dire challenges we face. The "Framework" was further developed through consultation with the Multi-Stakeholder Advisory Committee of the SFS Programme, and through wider consultations, including severall workshops carried out throughout 2018.

Why do I need this?

The "Framework" is not deterministic. Using it does not mean implementing a series of pre-configured actions with no regards for different contexts across our planet. Rather, it is a tool that provides a series of steps that are considered important in order to achieve transformation of food systems that has higher chances of producing positive sustainability outcomes and of being sustained in time.

How can I use it?

Depending on your country’s or city’s specific policy and development context, only certain actions may be required to achieve desired food systems outcomes, and several actions may be undertaken in parallel. The FS Framework offers a “Reference checklist” that help governments and food systems stakeholder to assess the progress with which their countries or cities are establishing good conditions for policy-making and implementation.
