Today, Adrienne Mollor, a Massachusetts cranberry grower, is representing SfL and the Private Sector Mechanism (PSM) in a side event during a High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) meeting at the United Nations headquarters in New York City. The event aims to bring together Member States and representatives of non-state actors to highlight the role of food systems transformation in achieving the UN’s2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The event will showcase Member States’ plans for using the implementation of Food Systems Transformation Pathways to accelerate achievement of the SDGs; explore Member States’ needs, barriers and opportunities in implementing food systems transformation strategies; and link national pathways to the ecosystem of support and to policy agreements from the Committee on Food Safety.

On Sunday through Tuesday, SfL President Ernie Shea will be representing the Farmers Constituency of the UN Framework Convention of Climate Change at the Petersberg Climate Dialogue in Berlin, Germany. The dialogue is a Ministerial Level event held in preparation for the upcoming global climate talks. This year’s Conference of Parties (COP 27) is set to take place in Sharm el-Sheik, Egypt in November. Next week’s dialogue aims to facilitate open discussions in small groups on key issues in international climate policy. The event will include a ministerial discussion of priorities ahead of COP 27; and adaptation and resilience building efforts. The session will also feature an address from UN Secretary General António Guterres.
