This policy brief aims to contribute to the discussion of how the G20 countries can best contribute to the achievement of a “sustainable food future”—one of the priorities of Argentina’s G20 presidency. The paper examines succinctly the role of trade in contributing to this objective; reviews the G20 discussions on food security to date, looking in particular at the issue of soil health which has been highlighted by Argentina as a key concern for countries to address; and identifies three key proposals for the G20 to consider in moving forward.
