A4NH research is relevant to a wide range of countries, especially in Africa and Asia. While engagement is most intensive in five, Bangladesh, Ethiopia, India, Nigeria, and Vietnam, work is also carried out in nearly 30 others. Lessons learned in one place can be carried forward to inform policy and research elsewhere, amplifying the impact and enabling countries to learn from and build on one another's experiences.
Beyond the many opportunities to build capacity and share knowledge at the country and local levels, exciting opportunities for learning and engagement also arise at global and regional events, where researchers, policymakers, and other stakeholders gather to collaboratively discuss challenges. A4NH engages in many of these conversations. Recent examples include:
- sharing research at the Africa Nutrition Conference
- engaging with early-career and senior researchers from around the world at the annual ANH Academy Week, of which A4NH is a co-convener;
- convening a conversation on how future food systems might be more sustainable and healthier at the IFPRI/FAO conference Accelerating the End of Hunger and Malnutrition
- showcasing research from across the program portfolio at Tropentag in 2018
- participating in panels, presenting learning sessions, and sharing research at the Seeds of Change conference on gender, held in Canberra, Australia, in 2019
- contributing to food safety research and conversations, ranging from a presentation in the Brussels Briefing series to supporting a symposium on the pork value chain in Asia to a range of prominent publications
