This paper examines how research on the impacts of food systems innovations can accelerate their contributions to healthier diets and to equitable and sustainable food systems more generally. Building on A4NH research, the authors look at how evidence from past studies of the impacts of
food systems innovations on diet-related outcomes maps to current food system priorities in Vietnam, explore what the studies reveal about the impact pathways from innovations to healthier diets and other outcomes, and highlight some promising innovations with potential for further research and scaling.
The paper, "What are the Opportunities for Accelerating Food Systems Innovations for Healthier Diets? Findings and Lessons from Vietnam," was published as part of the International Food Policy Research Institute's discussion paper series in June 2021.
