The Board for International Food and Agricultural Development (BIFAD) will convene a public meeting to explore opportunities and challenges for private sector engagement and market system linkages across the food system to advance nutrition outcomes. The meeting will examine public sector and private sector relationships at different points in the food system to improve the demand, availability, accessibility and affordability of high-quality diets for vulnerable populations. Discussions will address how to build a business case for private sector involvement in improving diet quality for vulnerable populations and how the public sector needs to engage to support and incentivize that business case. Recommendations coming out of the meeting will help to inform USAID's future focus in this area.
