Food Governance Showcase

3 November 2017



Food is crucial to human survival and to the functioning of social, cultural and economic life. Yet the global food system faces serious threats that compromise its ability to deliver safe, adequate, nutritious, and sustainable food to the world's population. A key challenge for decision makers is identifying laws, policies, and regulations that will promote food security, safety, and sustainability, and improve nutrition and diet-related health, within the context of a rapidly changing food supply.

Drawing on the success of the 2016 Food Governance Conference, the Food Governance Node is hosting a showcase of home-grown work exploring these issues.

Like the conference before it, the Food Governance Showcase will cover food-specific laws and regulations, as well as other areas of law and policy that facilitate or impede access to a nutritious, equitable and sustainable food supply, for example, economic, trade, and intellectual property regimes. We welcome engagement with food system governance at the local, national, regional, and global level.

As the keynote event, the showcase will feature Law and Food: Back to Basics, where a panel of three legal experts will speak on specific areas of law and how they intersect with food and nutrition.
