CS Mithika Linturi Leads Inauguration of National Food Systems Technical Working Group at Kilimo House

Nairobi, Kenya – In a significant step towards building sustainable food systems, CS Mithika Linturi, the Cabinet Secretary for Agriculture, officiated the inauguration of the National Food Systems Technical Working Group at Kilimo House. The event brought together key stakeholders from various ministries, organizations, and United Nations agencies, highlighting Kenya’s commitment to national and international efforts in this area.

Kenya has actively subscribed to initiatives aimed at developing sustainable food systems, aligning with global goals such as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In September 2021, the UN Secretary-General organized the Food Systems Summit (FSS), which served as a crucial platform within the Decade of Action to achieve the SDGs by 2030.

As part of the ongoing progress, a government delegation will participate in the stocktaking summit scheduled to take place in Rome in mid-July. The summit aims to review the milestones accomplished so far in the eradication of hunger by 2030, allowing Kenya to assess its achievements and contribute to global discussions on food security.

The newly established National Food Systems Technical Working Group comprises a multi-stakeholder team consisting of representatives from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Water, Sanitation, and Irrigation, Ministry of Mining, Blue Economy and Maritime Affairs, Ministry of Education, the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA), and various United Nations agencies. The collaboration between these entities reflects the shared commitment to addressing the complexities of food systems and promoting sustainable practices.

With CS Mithika Linturi’s leadership and the collective efforts of the working group, Kenya is poised to advance its strategies, policies, and partnerships in the pursuit of sustainable and resilient food systems. The inauguration of this group marks a significant milestone towards achieving the nation’s food security goals and contributing to global efforts to end hunger by 2030.
