Born and raised in rural Togo, Gilbert F. Houngbo, President of the International Fund for Agricultural Development, has spent more than 30 years working to improve the lives of some of the world’s most vulnerable people.

Abigail Herron, Global Head of Responsible Investment at Aviva Investors, which manages close to USD 0.5 trillion worth of assets, are today's guest. We discuss why investors are increasingly paying attention to the financial risks connected to factory farming, oceanic plastic, anti-microbial resistance and the global decline of pollinators. There are significant risks to the way we produce our food that are lurking in the blind spots of the world’s capital markets. Left unchecked, these risks could have potential financial impacts running into trillions of dollars. Abigail tells us how Aviva is working with the financial community to help us towards a more sustainable, well-fed, future.Learn more at EATforum.org
Today’s guest is Line Gordon, the newly appointed director of the Stockholm Resilience Center – EAT’s scientific partner. We talked to Line about why water is the “bloodstream of the biosphere”, the power of consumers and how we need to adjust our eating habits to make them both healthier and sustainable. However, Line is not a believer in cutting meat and dairy out altogether. Livestock has an important role to play in our food system, both from a livelihood and a biodiversity perspective. Instead, she recommends what she calls The Good Shift, key words for which are quality, culture and culinary innovators.Learn more at EATforum.org
Ali Said Mandhry, popularly known as Chef Ali L’artiste – a Kenyan Celebrity Chef, TV/Radio personality and culinary instructor, is today's guest. Ali’s love of food came early: he began cooking at the age of seven and by the time he’d turned 12, he had his own business selling cakes. Today Ali champions Kenyan cuisine both nationally and internationally, and is part of IFAD's Recipes for Change campaign, which raises awareness about the impacts of climate change on food crops and traditional recipes. He came to the EAT Stockholm Food Forum as a representative of the Chef’s Network, a global network of chefs who are working to create a better food system for all. We talked to him about gender stereotypes in the culinary arts, breaking food barriers and empowering small-scale farmers.Learn more at EATforum.org
Today we’re talking to Tom Arnold, Member of the Global Panel on Agriculture and Food systems for Nutrition, and EAT’s Policy Officer Emily Norford about how rapidly rising urbanization in low and middle-income countries is adversely affecting diets and health. We explore the role regulators, private sector and civil society can play to promote healthier urban food environments and what one can learn from measures introduced by cities like Copenhagen, Quito and Vancouver ranging from public procurement of organic food to urban agriculture programs.Learn more at EATforum.org
Thina Saltvedt, formerly one of Norway’s most profiled oil analysts and now a senior advisor for Sustainable Finance at Nordea Bank, the largest banking group in the Nordic region, is our guest today.
