💡 How the resetting of corporate control of food systems is already well under way 👇🏾


🧵 A thread on #foodsystems & the #UNFSS /1
Few people will dispute that global food systems need transformation, but this #UNFSS is instead an effort by a powerful alliance of multinational corporations, philanthropies, and export-oriented countries to subvert multilateral institutions of food #governance.

Once Guterres appointed a Special Envoy and the structure of the Summit was announced, the drivers behind the Summit became clear.

Excited to share our comment in @NatureFoodJnl… (free to read 👉 Here we discuss the environmental costs of discarding food before entering the market in water-limited #drylands Want to know +? Keep reading👇1/12 #ZeroHunger #SDG2
1/3 of the food produced globally is not consumed, of which approximately 14% corresponds to post-harvest loss… In most high-income countries, the primary reason for this is to control prices
This discarded food is often produced unsustainably, contributing to the depletion of resources such as water & fertilizers and to #climatechange by emitting CO2 Despite this, the EU subsidies this practice to compensate farmers for losses associated with price fluctuations

The pain inflicted by the pandemic has devastating effects on sustainable development, the concept that reflects the complexity of our world by combining and juxtaposing the socio, economic and environmental aspects of human activity #SDGs
The direct effects of #COVID19 on sustainable development come from the adverse health outcomes of the virus, and the extent to which its rate of mortality and morbidity impacts on the size and health of the labour force and its productivity (#SDG3) @WHO @ilo @UNDP @UN_Women
This in turn affects, for example, the fight against poverty (#SDG1), the number of people at risk of famine (#SDG2), education outcomes (#SDG4), economic growth and employment (#SDG8), and more. @UNDP @SUN_Movement @WHO @FAO @UNICEF @ITU @UNOCHA

The FG has an "Economic Advisory Council" with seasoned Economists - what do our States have?

The development of Nigeria cannot be achieved alone by the FG.

We need State Govts
We need Local Govts
We need Private partnerships
We need NGOs/CSOs
We need FBOs
We need You
Some States don't even have Executive Councils, the Governors are in charge with unilateral decision power.

If State Governors don't get Governance right, the little the FG is doing will never be enough for most Nigerians to feel good governance.
The FG budgets for Basic Education from its Revenue share....2% of whatever the FG makes goes to UBEC to be shared among all States + FCT.

Unfortunately, these monies are not fully accessed by many States.

Does your State care enough to allocate first line charge to Education?
