The UN Food Systems Summit +2 Stocktaking Moment built on the momentum of the 2021 Food Systems Summit (UNFSS) and created a conducive space for countries to review progress on the commitments to action and identify successes, enduring bottlenecks, and priorities in order to close the implementation gap by effectively and efficiently utilizing the Means of Implementation for food systems transformation. It also was an opportunity to further socialize the powerful role of sustainable, equitable, healthy and resilient food systems as critical SDG accelerators and advocate for urgent action at scale, building on the latest evidence that sustainable food systems contribute to better and more sustainable outcomes for people, planet and prosperity leaving no one behind.
The UNFSS provided an ideal platform to bring new insights and a much deeper understanding of aquatic foods into dialogues about the future of food production from the ocean and freshwater systems. The Blue Food Assessment brought blue foods to the policy table at that Summit, which also laid a foundation for the Aquatic Blue Food Coalition.
