Video: Understanding Food Systems for Healthier Diets


by A4NH

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?
