Advancing Food Systems Transformation: A Personal View
David Nabarro will discuss adopting people-centered systems approaches, such as food systems transformation.
About this Event

In his speech, Dr David Nabarro will reflect on local and national priorities regarding food systems transformation, an area where Ireland is an acknowledged leader. He will also focus on interconnected challenges such as climate action and sustainable development. Dr Nabarro will present his experience of the catalysing effect of systems thinking and adopting a people-centred approach when tackling inter-connected challenges, such as food systems transformation. He will argue that such an approach must be adapted to the interests of people of the lowest incomes and with the least agency. Dr Nabarro will conclude that this novel way of thinking and working together will have the greatest likelihood of long-term success.

Dr David Nabarro is Strategic Director of 4SD Foundation, Geneva; Professor of Global Health at Imperial College, London; and Special Envoy on COVID-19 for the Director General of the World Health Organization (WHO).

Dr Nabarro has served as Senior UN System Coordinator for Avian and Pandemic Influenza (2005-2014). He was Coordinator of the UN system’s High-Level Task Force on the Food Security Crisis 2009-2014 and Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for Food Security and Nutrition and Coordinator of the Scale-up Nutrition Movement (2010-2014).
