CFS Open Virtual Event on “Resilient Food Supply Chains and Workers’ health during COVID-19”

Guided by a discussion paper on Food Security and Worker’s Health during COVID-19, the virtual event will: a) Look into the vulnerabilities of the food system to COVID-19 with a focus on the perishables sector (e.g. fruits, dairy, vegetables, and meats); b) Spotlight existing guidance, policy papers, and other resources that aim at aiding food supply chain stakeholders in the management of the pandemic to minimize its potential collateral damage; c) Discuss existing gaps that are impeding the implementation of protective measures resulting in continued spread of the virus, disruption of food supply chains, and continued exposure of food workers; and, d) Identify and discuss efforts and ways of retooling economic activities and food supply chains to ensure these activities can continue in a safe manner. The outcomes of the discussion will be captured in a CFS Chairperson’s Summary for wider distribution to interested stakeholders.
