It is aimed to call for new decisive action to change the way the world produces and consume food, reduce diet-related diseases, make the planet healthier and make progress in the implementation of all 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

Independent dialogue is an integral, developing the theme of the Summit, part of the events of Global Food Forum - 2021.

The Independent Dialogue aims to help raise global awareness, strengthen global commitments and action, and provide an opportunity for contributors with different voices to find common ground to combine their efforts.

Effectively responding to emergencies, saving the lives of people at risk of hunger, achieving the Zero Hunger 2030 goal requires the coordinated work of multiple partners, whether humanitarian, government or the private sector, as each partner shares his knowledge and ideas in the name of common cause. The focus of the Independent Dialogue is on assessing the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, which escalates into an economic crisis with severe implications for food security. Rising food prices due to supply chain disruptions can lead to an increase in the depth and extent of poverty. As well as the role of partnerships in achieving the SDGs and promoting post-era economic recovery.

Special attention within the dialogue is paid to the most effective use of best practices, experience and knowledge as part of building independent interactions to achieve the SDGs in Greater Eurasia - Africa and the Eurasian Economic Union.
