A United Nations Food Systems Summit Independent Dialogue organized by the UN Environment Management Group (UN-EMG), in close collaboration with UNU Institute for Integrated Management of Material Fluxes and of Resources (UNU-FLORES).

Resilient food systems are embedded within the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and are a Nexus of economic, social and environmental development. In recognizing that food systems are simultaneously the cause and effect of layered variables and interactions, this Independent Dialogue seeks to investigate the accelerating effect of Integrated Natural Resource Management (INRM), underlined by Donella Meadows’ systems-thinking framework for leverage points. A leverage point is a place in a system’s structure where a solution can be applied.
