To make more sustainable, diverse, healthy and nutritious food available for low-income citizens in target countries.
Indonesia, Uganda, Zambia, Bolivia
The world is producing more food than ever; however, the current food system is not benefiting everyone equally, and not all have access to healthy and nutritious food produced in a manner that ensures food security now and in the future. Large-scale mono-cropping of maize, soy, wheat and palm oil erode ecosystems and lead to both obesity and nutritional deficiencies. This is further worsened by a globalized food industry that promotes ultra-processed foods high in meat, fats, sugar and salt.
SD4ALL builds the advocacy capacity of CSOs to challenge unsustainable practices and incentives in food production and consumption. The program takes evidence – especially that generated by citizens – directly to policymakers and international institutions so their policies, market practices and legislation will promote diets that are diverse, healthy, fair and based on environmentally sustainable production methods. One of the principal strategies is to set up Food Change Labs to bring multiple stakeholders together to share knowledge, evidence and ideas, and to jointly develop local, national and international examples of how food systems can be transformed.
