This session will look at practical proposals to advance the 9 food and nutrition commitment areas set out in the N4G Food system commitment framework and ask in particular, how business and other stakeholders can help governments better deliver solutions faster.
Our food systems are bankrupting our health systems, accelerating climate change and using natural resources in an unsustainable way. Most people agree they need to be transformed to change this. But how? Food systems are complex and offer many entry points for change.
Food fortification, the addition of vitamins and minerals to foods to make them more nutritious, is proven to have long-lasting positive effects on people’s lives by reducing micronutrient deficiencies. No other technology offers as large an opportunity to improve lives at such low cost and in such a short time
The Second Global Summit on Food Fortification is part of a worldwide effort to invigorate interest, awareness and investment in Large-Scale Food Fortification (LSFF) and biofortification – two population-based interventions with enormous potential to contribute sustainably to reducing and preventing micronutrient deficiencies globally.
The Micronutrient Forum is looking forward to welcoming over 1000 researchers, program implementers and policy-makers from around the world to its 5th Global Conference 2020 from March 23rd – 27th in Bangkok, Thailand.
"Power on your plate" is an all-Africa summit on diversifying food systems with African traditional vegetables to increase health, nutrition and wealth. With more than 20% of Africa’s population undernourished and close to one-third food insecure, it is clear that food systems must change - to nourish people, not merely feed them.
Food systems are our number one opportunity for improving climate, human health, biodiversity and equity.
With 2030 identified as both a point of no return in climate change, and the deadline to meet all 17 Sustainable Development Goals, the next ten years will determine our future.
The Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) organises the second edition of the executive short course, Together for Nutrition, which focuses on public-private engagement to improve the consumption of nutritious and safe food.
