At the global conference of the 10 Year Programme on Sustainable Food Systems (SFS), which is strongly related to SDG 12, participants discussed ways towards more sustainable food production and consumption.

From 5 to 7 February 2019, the 2nd Global Conference of the 10 Year Programme on Sustainable Food Systems (SFS) took place in San José, Costa Rica. After South Africa in 2017, Costa Rica was the second country to host a global conference in the SFS Programme. This led to a specific focus on efforts in South America with its special set of challenges such as deforestation, high meat consumption and obesity of middle-income urban populations and high inequality.

Participants were particularly pleased by the host country’s efforts to transform its agriculture sustainably, including striving for carbon neutrality for instance with meat or coffee, supporting the reputation of the country as a hotspot for sustainable tourism and as a role model for stability in the region. The ministries of agriculture and the environment jointly presented at the conference, showing how payments for environmental services are fully integrated into agricultural support systems.
