Origins

Global Network

Arab Friends of Champions 12.3 is a regional network linked to Champions 12.3. Champions 12.3 is a coalition of executives from governments, businesses, international organizations, research institutions, farmer groups, and civil society dedicated to inspiring ambition, mobilizing action, and accelerating progress toward achieving Sustainable Development Goal Target 12.3 by 2030. Members are senior executives of these institutions, including ministers, chief executive officers, and executive directors. These executives preside over institutions that have the ability to impact food loss and waste reduction at scale and that are dedicated to meeting Target 12.3. 

The formation of the global network of Champions 12.3, a multi stakeholder network dedicated to meeting Target 12.3, was formally called upon during the United Nations General Assembly’s Sustainable Development Summit in September 2015.
