On its third and final day, the meeting promoted by Italy and the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) addressed the last items on the main agenda and side events.

A ministerial roundtable reflected on the Rio conventions on biodiversity, climate change, desertification, and their link to the top meeting on Food Systems, convened for upcoming September by the UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres.

Afterwards, delegates, such as the top leaders of the three Un agencies: FAO’s Director General Qu Dongyu, the president of the International Fund for Agricultural Development, Gilbert Houngbo, and the executive director of the World Food Program, David Beasley, carried out a plenary session providing a general outlook of the issues discussed, based on a previous agenda.

The conference ended with a speech by Italy’s Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio, and a statement by the UN Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed, the results of which exceeded the expectations of its organizers.

The aim of the pre-summit was to gather proposals based on evidence, science and technology to transform food systems and optimize the way we think, produce and consume food, to establish new commitments through coalitions for action and to mobilize more funding and partnerships.
