The UN Food Systems Summit will be convened in 2021 by UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to encourage bold new actions and innovative solutions for transforming food systems. In preparation for Australia's contribution, the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR) and the Australian Government Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) are co-convening a Food Systems Summit Dialogue to facilitate robust discussion among key stakeholders about the role of partnerships in developing and scaling innovations for global impact.

Strong partnerships will be instrumental in achieving the 2030 Agenda. Developing best-practice partnership pathways can help support collaborative efforts to transform food systems. The Dialogue will focus on robust Australian partnerships and successful collaborations in international agricultural innovation and development. It will highlight several tangible examples of game-changing Australian innovation and investment that, with the right partnerships in place, can be scaled for significant impact globally.
