FAO WorldFoodForum

This year, World Food Forum 2022 brought together more than 2,000 people in person at FAO headquarters in Rome, from presidents to artists, scientists, investors, Indigenous Peoples and young leaders from around the world! With over 40,000 visits online, and registrants from more than 180 countries, WFF 2022 provided a unique hybrid experience from across the globe to ensure inclusivity and awareness.

The forum brought together three concurrent streams, focusing on youth, science, technology and innovation and Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations’s (FAO’s) flagship Hand-in-Hand Initiative pairing prospective investors with countries in greatest need of support. 

Organizers stressed there is no one individual thing that made this year’s World Food Forum a success, but instead it was the coming together of all the different perspectives, and all the stakeholders, across regions and generations. The three interlinked streams highlighted the importance of collaboration between the current and next generation. And our combined ingenuity in science, technology, innovation – and investments give us the best hope of creating a better food future, leaving no one behind.
