The Global People’s Food Systems Summit will gather a broad audience of rural peoples, people’s organizations, CFOs, local farmers, and Indigenous Peoples to accelerate progress towards creating more just equitable, and sustainable food systems to support those who depend on them the most. As a counter-movement to the UN Food Systems Summit, the Global People’s Summit on Food Systems aims to put the voices of the marginalized at the forefront of agenda-setting for transforming our food systems. This Summit is open to all who share its vision of transforming our world into one with zero hunger without sacrificing the health of our planet.

The IUCN Congress will be held in Marseille from 3 to 11 September 2021.

Taking into account the current health situation, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) has decided to organise a “hybrid” IUCN World Conservation Congress, thus allowing people not able to physically attend the event to follow and participate in some parts of the Congress remotely.

The French government reaffirms that it is very pleased to host this IUCN Congress on its territory, while doing its utmost to ensure that this is done under the conditions desired by IUCN and in accordance with the health protocols in force at the time of the event.

The idea of the discussion is to find solutions to some of the issues we are currently dealing with in the identification and verification of small-scale fishers.
