As 2020 comes to an end, a difficult year for most, we have dedicated this episode not only to reflect on this year but also to celebrate the end of the year. 2020 began with a global pandemic that affected every country differently. The major health crisis had some ripple effects on the global economy, societies, and the mental state of many. Some of the pandemic effects exacerbated inequalities with the potential longer-term consequences which reminded us that much work lies ahead to bridge the gaps.
While 2020 meant a crisis to most, to our guest Lawrence Haddad, Executive Director of the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), it also meant opportunity. Looking forward to next year, 2021 brings a wealth of opportunities to bring the nutrition agenda forward with important events such as the Nutrition for Growth (also known as Japan N4G) and the UN Food Systems Summit.
Tune in to Episode 04 of Bite the Talk: “Looking ahead”, an episode that takes us through a journey in time, collecting the events of this year and transforming them into opportunities with bright and optimistic lenses.
