Agriculture, Food Systems, and Nutrition: Connecting the Evidence for Action
The Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Nutrition, in conjunction, with our partner, Johns Hopkins University School of Public Health, in collaboration with the Institute of Medicine,the Nepali Technical Assistance Group, and the Nepal Agriculture Research Council, hosted its 3rd annual Scientific Symposium in Kathmandu, Nepal on November 18-20, 2014. The question driving this symposium was simple: how can agriculture improve household food security and nutrition outcomes? Yet the work of understanding the agriculture to nutrition pathway is complex. Building sustainable systems that promote food security, nutrition, and health in Nepal requires the utilization of high-quality, empirical evidence. The implications of understanding agriculture to nutrition pathways in Nepal are far-reaching; as stated by USAID Mission Director to Nepal, Dr. Beth Dunford, “the world is looking at Nepal for evidence of what works.”
