WFF Theme 2023: Agrifood systems transformation accelerates climate action

What is the World Food Forum flagship event?

The World Food Forum (WFF) flagship event is a dynamic global platform that transcends boundaries, generations and sectors to transform the future of our agrifood systems. On 16–20 October 2023, both at the Headquarters of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO) in Rome, Italy, and on our interactive virtual platform, the 2023 event brought together world experts, impassioned changemakers and visionary leaders of all ages around the theme: “Agrifood systems transformation accelerates climate action.

Organized into three interlinked fora - the WFF Global Youth Forum, the FAO Science and Innovation Forum and the FAO Hand-in-Hand Investment Forum - the 2023 flagship event leveraged the power of intergenerational collaboration and creativity across policy, science, innovation, education, culture and investment. The goal is to forge new paths of action, impact and acceleration on the local, regional and global levels towards a sustainable, resilient, inclusive and hunger-free food future for all.
