The theme of the day is “Unlocking business opportunities for food & nutrition security in the wake of climate change”. DETAILED PROGRAM
Food and nutrition security – the undeniable link: Bringing together actors working on the nutrition theme, the session will deliberate on innovative models that present opportunities for business. Various actors including development partners, private sector and other actors will explore the business cases that nutrition presents towards achieving food and nutrition security objectives. The stakeholders will also explore opportunities for scaling up successful business initiatives addressing nutrition. READ MORE ON THE CONCEPT NOTE
Leverage on climate change financing to build sustainable business partnership addressing food security:-We are increasingly seeing partnerships and initiatives among stakeholders on climate change as well as food security. However, these partnerships are happening within the “silos” of climate change and food security, with many projects remaining disconnected. Yet climate change is a big contributor and driver of food security. There is a need for an integrated approach to explore the business opportunities – because until stakeholders develop a business case around climate change, then all these initiatives contributing sustainably towards food security might be futile. The session will provide a platform for the different actors to explore and develop these business cases. READ MORE ON THE CONCEPT NOTE
