At the New Delhi G20 summit, G20 leaders vowed to boost global food security and nutrition through research cooperation on resilient grains, also pledged to invest in agriculture to enhance productivity, reduce food waste, and build sustainable, climate-resilient food system, whereas, severe rain battered parts of Turkey, Brazil, Spain, China, and the United States, disrupting local services and creating barriers to accessing food and clean water. Rice prices reached a 15-year high in August, 2023 due to India's ban on overseas sales of non-basmati rice. In between IFFPRI organized second seminar of the CGIAR Policy Seminar Series on Strengthening Food Systems to explore how such schemes could be taken forward in order to help build greater resilience within food systems. There seems a potential solution in regenerative agriculture and to empower eaters through access, affordability and healthy choices, although, a projected 600 million people will still be undernourished for which, countries need to embrace localized solutions and extension system need to gear up.
