BOOK LAUNCH: Agriculture for Improved Nutrition: Seizing the Momentum
It is an opportune time to be working in the fields of agriculture and nutrition. Every day, researchers are producing more evidence on the agriculture-nutrition nexus; professionals are stepping out of silos to work across sectors; and people and institutions are improving their capacity to carry out this work. The momentum built during the past decade has created boundless opportunities for redesigning and reimagining agricultural and food systems for the benefit of nutrition.
This event marks the publication of Agriculture for Improved Nutrition: Seizing the Momentum, co-edited by Shenggen Fan, Sivan Yosef, and Rajul Pandya-Lorch. The volume reviews the latest evidence, results from on-the-ground interventions, and recent national policy experiences of bringing agriculture and nutrition closer together. Panelists will discuss big data, the design of agriculture-nutrition programming, the global obesity epidemic, and India’s and Malawi’s successes and challenges in linking agriculture to nutrition.
