UNITAR – SES4Food
UNITAR and the F&BKP
The objective of the Social Entrepreneurship Support for Food Security (SES4Food) pillar of UNITAR is to contribute to ending hunger, achieving food security and improved nutrition, and promoting sustainable agriculture (SDG Goal 2) by creating flourishing ecosystems for social entrepreneurs working on food production (SDG Goal 8). More specifically, by connecting social entrepreneurs, support organisations, market actors and private sector investors (including diaspora) and by empowering these actors to work together effectively, the project contributes to the establishment of sustainable food production systems (SDG 12) which in turn will ensure access by all people, in particular people in vulnerable situations, to nutritious food.
With support of the F&BKP, a mapping process of social entrepreneurs within their ecosystems has been published.
The United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) provides innovative learning solutions to individuals, organizations and institutions to enhance global decision-making and support country-level action for shaping a better future.
UNITAR launched a four-year strategic framework, covering 2018-2021, which is aligned with the 2030 Agenda and uses the Sustainable Development Goals as the guiding principle for their work with the strategic objectives organized around four out of five thematic pillars of the 2030 Agenda (Peace, People, Planet and Prosperity).
UNITAR provides training and capacity development activities to assist mainly developing countries with special attention to Least Developed Countries (LDCs), Small Island Developing States (SIDS) and other groups and communities who are most vulnerable, including those in conflict situations.
