On June 2022 the FAO’s Food and Nutrition Division will host a webinar to launch its book Public food procurement for sustainable food systems and healthy diets, and share key analyses and lessons learned. The study was recently published together with the Alliance of Bioversity International and CIAT, and the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (Brazil). Building on the increasing recognition of PFP initiatives and gathering contributions from 100 authors from multiple fields, covering experiences from 32 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe and North and South America, the publication represents one of the most comprehensive contributions on the topic to date.
During the webinar, EPLG member Roberto Caranta will share some reflections on FAO’s publication as well as current challenges in public food procurement.
