Policy Seminar: Food Systems Transformations: National Actions in a Globalized World

POLICY SEMINAR: FOOD SYSTEMS TRANSFORMATIONS: NATIONAL ACTIONS IN A GLOBALIZED WORLD

by A4NH

Seminar to be held November 14. RSVP, livestream details, and more here.

Food systems in developing countries are undergoing a rapid transformation, shaped by global and regional events. But country actions will be critical in shaping future food system outcomes.

Some countries are taking a systemic approach to assessing and acting on food system transformation – considering consumption and food environments, food supply and sustainability, health, and socioeconomic outcomes.

This seminar will introduce this approach, and representatives from Nigeria and Vietnam will discuss the challenges, opportunities, and trade-offs they encounter in enabling food system actors in their countries. A panel will share insights into how food systems can develop in a healthy, sustainable, and equitable way.

The policy seminar will be held Thursday, 14 November, 2019, at 12:15PM EST at the International Food Policy Research Institute's headquarters in Washington, DC. Learn more, including how to RSVP and livestream details, here.
