Joining fellow agriculture ministers of United Nations (UN) member-countries, Agriculture Secretary William Dar shared virtually the initiatives of the Philippines to transform and attain sustainable food systems, at the UN Food Systems pre-summit, in Rome, Italy, on July 26-28, 2021.

Delving on the topic, “Achieving Zero Hunger: Nutritiously and Sustainably,” Secretary Dar was invited by UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, as one of the speakers at the Rome pre-summit, where the DA chief was joined by 24 agriculture ministers from other member-countries of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).

The Rome pre-summit was conducted in a hybrid format, where dozens of ministers and delegates attended physically, complemented by a virtual platform, engaging thousands of other participants from around the world.

Every UN FAO member-state also had the opportunity to provide statements on their respective national food systems transformation. (Photos by Alan Jay Jacalan, DA-AFID)
