Abstract/Description

The FAO/UNEP joint programme is catalyzing partnerships among United Nations agencies, other international agencies, governments, industry and civil society to promote activities that can contribute to sustainable food systems. Improving knowledge collection and sharing are a key area of work to progress towards more sustainable food systems, taking into consideration the environmental, economic and social dimensions. The various sessions of the workshop organized by the FAO/UNEP Programme in September 2014 considered the needs and perspectives of the various stakeholders and ways to address them. This publication is a compilation of the papers presented at the workshop, and the workshop summary.
