Agriculture for Improved Nutrition and Health

Publisher: IFPRI

Hunger, malnutrition, and poor health are widespread and stubborn development challenges. Agriculture has made remarkable advances in the past decades, but progress in improving the nutrition and health of poor farmers and consumers in developing countries is lagging behind. A recent IFPRI 2020 Conference in New Delhi, ?Leveraging Agriculture for Improving Nutrition and Health,? brought together about 1,000 stakeholders to examine how agriculture could be energized to become a more powerful tool to tackle the persistent problems of food insecurity, malnutrition, and poor health. Building on the momentum created by those discussions, the CGIAR Research Program on Agriculture for Nutrition and Health (CRP4) is designed to fill the existing gap between agricultural development and its unfulfilled health and nutritional benefits.
