Sustainable Food Systems Topic Overview and Resources

Creating Sustainable Food Systems

By 2050, the global population is likely to reach close to 10 billion people. It will take an enormous and collaborative global effort to produce enough healthy food to feed such an enormous population spread across the world. However, just growing enough food for 10 billion people is not enough. Climate change and food equity concerns are also incredibly important in discussions about our global food systems.

Students assigned to this committee topic in the 2021-2022 Jr. Model United Nations - Student Diplomat Program will explore the development of the world's current food systems, how those food systems impact critical issues like climate change and food equity, and will ultimately work to imagine the healthy food systems of the future. 

Curated resources for students and teachers, including the Council's committee topic briefing paper, will be made available on this page in the coming weeks.
