Join GRP and partners at our open Side Event Food Transformation for All: What Business can Do to Build Resilience during the 2019 EAT Stockholm Food Forum, a gathering of nearly 1000 top global thought leaders from science, politics, business, civil society and beyond.

The GRP event features inspirational speakers discussing what it takes to deliver resilient food and agriculture systems in vulnerable and fragile states. Presenters will highlight how business can integrate resilience in food value chains benefiting markets and communities in the least developed countries. 

In interactive sessions, attendees will identify the actions they can contribute towards equitable food system transformation.  The side event will also outline engagement opportunities for the UN SG Climate Summit and the affiliated Building a Resilient Future  on 22 September 2019. 

EAT Forum conference tickets are not required to attend this side event. For more information or to express interest in attending, contact Maya Rebermark: mrebermark@globalresiliencepartnership.org
