The GFS-FSR Programme drew to a close with four days of learning and reflections in London.

Stakeholders and food system researchers gathered in London to hear keynote speakers from academia, industry and government share resilience insights and examples from the UK and overseas.

Due to Covid-19 guidelines, the conference was split in to two parts, with the first part taking place on 7-8 December 2021. The second and final part, a OECD-CRP National Viewpoints Event took place on 5-6 April 2022.

Reflecting the Programme’s emphasis on stakeholder collaboration,  the workshops on 7-8 December 2022 were designed to stimulate discussions among those working on food system challenges on how to operationalise the resilience concepts evidenced by the research from the Programme.

The final part of the conference in April 2022 drew together researchers from OECD nations to examine food system resilience through an international lens. Scientists from Australasia, north and south America and Europe critiqued the UK programme’s work and added insights on food system resilience from their own national perspectives.
