Policies against Hunger XIV on 27/28 June 2023 in Berlin

Policies against Hunger XIV is taking place on 27/28 June 2023 in Berlin.

The 14th “Policies against Hunger” Conference under the topic “Human rights-based approaches to food systems transformation” provides a platform for the exchange between different stakeholders and aims to commonly develop guidelines for food systems transformation that can be derived from a human rights perspective.

To this end the conference will bring together representatives from politics and administration, international organisations, civil society, the private sector and academia to exchange views on the transformation of food systems internationally and to discuss how to shift to a systems approach in order to make food systems more sustainable, resilient and just.

Common findings and recommendations of conference participants will inform international efforts to advance food systems transformation, e.g. in the context of the 2030 Agenda, the follow-up to the United Nations Food Summit and the work in the United Nations Committee on World Food Security (CFS), as well as national policy-making.
