Transforming Food Systems to Deliver Healthy, Sustainable Diets : The View from the World’s Science Academies

Co-Organized by IFPRI and InterAcademy Partnership

Feb 14, 2019 - 12:15 pm to 01:45 pm EST

Venue: Washington, DC / USA

The InterAcademy Partnership (IAP), a global network of science academies, recently brought together regional networks of science academies from four continents—Africa, the Americas, Asia, and Europe. This project aimed to spark a new global commitment to research the opportunities and challenges facing food and nutrition security and agriculture today.

 

This seminar will provide details on the scope and priorities of the IAP project, the regional perspectives of participants, and a global synthesis. During the discussion, participants will explore mutual interests in increasing the sciences’ contribution to informed policy development, innovation, and practice.
