Agriculture for Improved Nutrition: Seizing the Momentum

Buy
About 800 million people suffer from hunger, 2 billion from lack of micronutrients, and more than 2 billion from overweight and obesity. There is renewed interest in reshaping agricultural and food systems, at the global, regional and national levels, so that poor and vulnerable people have access to and are able to consume nutritious foods.

This book examines direct and indirect effects of agriculture on nutrition, following the agricultural value chain to explore this complex relationship, from biodiversity and crop fortification, to program evaluation, to the impact of agricultural policies on consumers’ choices and actions. It explores the role of various actors along the chain, including women and the private sector, and cross-cutting themes such as data and capacity building. Developing-country experiences and the knowledge and action gaps that remain in truly integrating agriculture and nutrition aims and related practices are considered.

Key Features:

- The evidence base of research on the relationship between agriculture and nutrition is considered
- Includes the insights of some of the world’s top researchers
- Presents data from real-world settings that is highly relevant and timely to developing countries’ current challenges
