Launch of the first edition of the "World Food Security Summit" in Abu Dhabi

Under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Vice President of the UAE, Deputy Prime Minister, Chairman of the Presidential Court and Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Abu Dhabi Agriculture and Food Safety Authority (ADAFSA), Abu Dhabi will host the World Food Security Summit for the first time at the ADNEC Centre Abu Dhabi on 26 and 27 November. This summit is part of the activities of Abu Dhabi Agriculture and Food Security Week (ADAFSW).

Organised by ADNEC Group, in strategic partnership with ADAFSA, and UAE F&B Manufacturing Group (FBMG) as a knowledge partner, the summit aims to encourage dialogue and practical steps towards building a sustainable global food system and eradicating hunger.

The summit seeks to attract a range of experts and decision-makers to discuss innovative solutions for strengthening the global food security system. This will support international efforts to eliminate hunger and enhance the UAE's position as a platform for managing dialogues, discussions, and initiatives in global food security. The World Food Security Summit will address national, regional, and international issues, providing a platform to exchange best practices and innovations in the food security sector.

Commenting on the launch, His Excellency Saeed Al Bahri Salem Al Ameri, Director-General of ADAFSA, said: "Food security is a major global challenge requiring the combined efforts and cooperation of all stakeholders worldwide to find innovative solutions to end hunger, a key UN Sustainable Development Goal.

Over the past decades, the UAE and the Emirate of Abu Dhabi have played a pioneering role in promoting sustainable food systems, inspired by the legacy of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the UAE's founder, and guided by the vision and directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE."
