It has explored the state-of-the-art of interdisciplinary insight, trade-offs and synergies in transforming food systems, towards towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. In January 2021, the Conference Scientific Committee published a statement summarizing the key scientific challenges as discussed by speakers and delegates in the conference.

Today, the Conference Committee is pleased to announce that the commitment of making the content of the conference available for a wider audience has been honoured. In addition, a paper from the conference has been published in the Global Food Security journal: Statement based on the 4th international conference on global food security – December 2020: Challenges for a disruptive research Agenda and it has fairly been made free access by Elsevier.
