Food systems are made up of all the people, processes, and activities involved in getting food from where it is grown to where it is eaten. These systems are changing fast, especially in low- and middle-income countries. How can we be sure this transformation provides people with healthy and sustainable access to foods? This video from the CGIAR Research Program on Agriculture for Nutrition and Health (A4NH) explains the challenges, opportunities, and issues involved in food systems transformation.
The conference provided an example of how work done by different A4NH flagships open opportunities for experience sharing across countries.
Event will explore how countries are assessing and acting on food system transformation – considering consumption and food environments, food supply and sustainability, health, and socioeconomic outcomes, with discussion about challenges, opportunities, and trade-offs.
