Following on the outcome of the 2010 High-level Plenary Meeting of the General Assembly on the Millennium Development Goals, the United Nations Secretary-General established the UN System Task Team in September 2011 to support UN system-wide preparations for the post-2015 UN development agenda, in consultation with all stakeholders. The Task Team is led by the Department of Economic and Social Affairs and the United Nations Development Programme and brings together senior experts from over 60 UN entities and international organizations to provide system-wide support to the post-2015 consultation process, including analytical input, expertise and outreach.
In November 2015, sixty-five international public and private sectors leaders participated in Food Chain Reaction, a simulation and role-playing exercise to improve our understanding of how governments, institutions, and private sector interests might interact to address a crisis in the global food system.
Over the course of two days, the players reacted to a scenario set five years in the future in a world where population growth, rapid urbanization, extreme weather and political crises combine to threaten global food security. By collaborating, negotiating, and confronting tradeoffs, they offered new insights into our food future.
Findings from game will be announced in January 2016.
Food Chain Reaction was produced by World Wildlife Fund and the Center for American Progress, with game design from CNA. Funding and technical support for Food Chain Reaction was provided by Cargill with major support from Mars, Inc.
Panel Discussion: Can Climate Change Break the Global Food System
On February 11, 2016 a panel of experts discussed the findings of Food Chain Reaction: A Global Food Security Game at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
Adding climate change to an already volatile mix of disruptions to global food security means more profound and urgent consequences for the global food system. Policies and actions affecting trade, climate and national security can exacerbate food system pressures and volatility worldwide. Panelists examined these issues and proposed policy recommendations to promote resilience and global food security.
The event featured an introduction by Michael Werz of the Center for American Progress (CAP), keynote speaker Senator Tom Daschle, Center for American Progress Chairman and Founder and CEO of The Daschle Group, moderator Alan Bjerga of Bloomberg News and panelists Tim Bodin of Cargill, David McLaughlin of World Wildlife Fund (WWF), Matthias Berninger of Mars Incorporated, Geraldo Martha of EMBRAPA Labex-USA and Nutan Kaushik of The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI).
Numerous schools in a Michigan township closed on Monday after numerous staff members fell ill suffering “negative reactions” from COVID-19 booster shots.
As employees get fired or resign from their jobs for refusing to comply with the vaccine mandate, schools in the Saginaw school district and around the country are substantially understaffed.
After numerous staff members of Saginaw County Community Schools received an experimental COVID booster shot over the weekend, they had negative reactions and were too sick to return to work, forcing the township’s elementary, middle and high schools to close in the district on Monday.
