Gaining access to healthy and affordable food regardless of income is a challenge for the majority of rural people in developing countries. The most basic requirement of getting enough calories is not met by up to 811 million people, who were undernourished last year. Healthy diets are expensive: more than four times the cost of a basic, calorie-sufficient one.
This N4G side event brings together different voices and perspective from governments, food systems experts and CSOs to discuss food systems solutions to increase food availability and affordability for rural people, identify interlinkages and connect the dots.
The event will be held in English with interpretation in Spanish, French and Japanese.
