Game-changing solutions for dairy

Director General of the International Dairy Federation Caroline Emond, discusses the UN Food Systems Summit and explores how school milk programmes play their part towards a sustainable future.

The United Nations (UN) Food Systems Summit, which took place last month (September), staged some big decision‑making regarding the future production and consumption of food.

It is more important than ever to deliver on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by the target of 2030 and, as such, the Summit Secretariat has issued a call for game-changing solutions (detailed below) to pick up the pace.

Work underway

The preparatory work for the summit has been underway for some time. A large part of that work is being carried out under five different Action Tracks (ATs) and within each of these individual tracks also sit several activities and tasks that will be carried out.

  • AT 1: Access to safe and nutritious food for all
  • AT 2: Shift to sustainable consumption patterns
  • AT 3: Boost nature-positive production
  • AT 4: Advance equitable livelihoods
  • AT 5: Build resilience to vulnerabilities, shocks and stress.
