Leveraging Agriculture for Improving Nutrition and Health Conference Briefs

Organizational Authors: 
IFPRI
Year Published: 
2011

In February 2011, IFPRI convened a conference in New Delhi to explore the theme, "Leveraging Agriculture for Improving Nutrition and Health." The briefs give a manageable but in-depth look at the relation between the conference theme and diverse topics such as gender, sectoral coordination and issues in nutrition and health along the value chain. They also present evidence based arguments for this renewed focus on the need to leverage agriculture to improve nutrition and health which is on the minds of academics, practitioners and donors alike - useful background for proposals.
