The First FAO / WHO / AU International Food Safety Conference 
Addis Ababa, 12-13 February 2019

FAO / WHO / WTO International Forum on Food Safety and Trade
Geneva, 23-24 April 2019

With an estimated 600 million cases of foodborne illnesses annually, unsafe food is a threat to human health and economies, disproportionally affecting vulnerable and marginalized people, especially women and children, populations affected by conflict and migrants.

This joint conference will bring together Ministers of Health, Ministers of Agriculture, leading scientific experts, partner agencies as well as representatives of consumers, food producers and the private sector to:

  •  Identify key actions and strategies to address current and future challenges to food safety globally;
  • Strengthen commitment at the highest political level to scale up food safety in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Ongoing changes in climate, global food production and supply systems affect consumers, industry and the planet itself. These changes can have an impact on food safety systems and pose sustainability and development challenges.

This is a pivotal moment demanding urgent international reflection on actions needed to bolster food safety, which will start in Addis Ababa and continue in Geneva. Priorities will be discussed so that food safety strategies and approaches can be aligned across sectors and borders, reinforcing efforts to reach the Sustainable Development Goals and supporting the UN Decade of Action on Nutrition.

The First FAO/WHO/AU International Conference on Food Safety is being held ahead of the International Forum on Food Safety and Trade, organized by FAO, WHO and WTO in Geneva on 23-24 April 2019.
