How Can Agriculture and Food System Policies Improve Nurtrition ?

Publisher: The Global Panel

Governments the world over are focused as never before on the importance of linking agriculture and food markets with improved health and nutrition. Recent food price volatility, expected population and food demand growth, changing dietary patterns and the threat of climate change are all factors adding complexity to the challenge of achieving food and nutrition security. Moreover, production, marketing and consumption patterns are changing rapidly the world over, which requires a new understanding of the dynamic pathways that link producers to consumers. The dialogue around healthy food systems and healthy populations has to be reframed to take account of both intended and unintended consequences of policy actions and private sector investments. Addressing not just agricultural productivity but improvements throughout the food and healthcare system represent critical opportunities for reducing malnutrition.
