Food Policy Meeting

How could diets (and the incidence of diet-related non-communicable diseases) be improved by the type of agriculture that is practiced and the policies supporting it? Can these outcomes be improved by policies favouring agricultural and dietary diversity? What is the role of nutritional guidelines in this regard, and how can such guidelines influence agricultural production? What if the level of knowledge of young people in V4 in this topic? Do they have enough "real information?" What young people could do more about it? The (Food Policy Meeting at the heart of this process will host 25-30 people, including scientists, policymakers, civil society and food and farming sector actors, to engage in 3-hour round-table discussions. Each Lab will be focused on a key nexus in food systems, i.e. the focal points where various policy imperatives, regulations, incentives and trends converge to shape our food systems. As such, the Labs are designed to bridge policy areas and constituencies that are typically kept apart (e.g. agriculture and nutrition, trade and environment). The discussions will take place under Chatham House rules, allowing for open dialogue and for common ground to be sought between different positions.) Exact date will be confirmed.
