- Facilitate mutual learning and experience sharing among countries, with a view to strengthening and deepening country engagements and ownership to advance the agriculture and food and nutrition security agenda.
- Raise awareness of food systems' centrality to the entire sustainable development agenda, and the urgency of transforming food systems, particularly in the wake of global pandemics and conflicts.
- Catalyse, accelerate, and enhance bold action for the transformation of food systems by all relevant stakeholders.
