Event Description

Recent research shows that improving nutrition from the health domain only nor from the agricultural domain only brings sufficient progress, but that progress will be highest at the intersection of agriculture, health and nutrition. Agricultural programs and policies need to become nutrition sensitive to increase the availability and accessibility and consumption of diverse and nutritious foods.
This course focus on how agricultural programs and policies can become nutrition sensitive to achieve the nutrition objectives. In addition, we will explore the different agricultural pathways leading to food and nutrition security. Experts will facilitate the course to provide you with the knowledge and skills to design and strengthen the implementation of nutrition sensitive agricultural programs and policies. The course is highly interactive, building on the participant’s own experiences and cases.
