The Sustainable Food Systems (SFS) Programme of the 10-Year Framework for Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production Patterns (10YFP) is a global multi-stakeholder partnership to accelerate the shift towards more sustainable food systems.
The 10YFP Trust Fund is one of the means of implementation of the Ten Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production Patterns (10YFP). It is used to support programmes and initiatives to shift towards SCP patterns that respond to the national and regional priorities of developing countries and countries with economies in transition.

The call is open to all actors of the SFS Programme (programme partners, MAC members and Co-Leads).

An executing agency can optionally be designated by the applicant to implement the project.
