As part of the Climate Finance Forum in São Paulo on 26-27 February, FSEC will host the event The Economics of the Food System Transformation: Priorities for Brazil

The Forum, first announced at COP28 alongside Brazilian Minister of Finance Fernando Haddad, precedes the G20 Finance Ministers meeting and will bring together members of the private sector, business coalitions, civil society, philanthropy, multilateral financing and economic organizations, both national and international, that are driving a green and just transition to a global low-carbon economy.

FSEC’s event will outline critical recommendations for policies to transform food systems and strategies to overcome political economy barriers to change, drawing on the recently published Global Policy Report. We will take a closer look at the hidden costs of the food system in Brazil and priorities for how these can be reduced. FSEC’s modelling work will provide crucial insights into how a sustainable transition of the Brazilian livestock sector can be achieved and financed.
