Background

Food systems cover the gamut of processes required to feed a population: growing, harvesting, processing, packaging, transporting, marketing, consumption, and disposal of food and food-related items. This webinar will cover integrating nutrition into food system policies, investments and programmes and thus contributes to sustainable development through SDGs 2 (on Zero Hunger), 3 (on Good Health and Well-Being), and 12 (targets 12.7, 12.8, and 12.A).

This international technical webinar is part of the series organized by the FAO eLearning Academy, Agreenium (l'Institut agronomique, vétérinaire et forestier de France) and UN-ESCAP (United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific). These webinars are an opportunity for all of us to share experiences and lessons learnt, discuss challenges, and propose innovative solutions and models. They aim to provide a holistic and comprehensive view of current trends in thematic areas related to global challenges, by combining development research and innovation perspectives. The main objective of these technical webinars is to give practitioners the opportunity to interact with international experts, United Nations officers, University professors, researchers and fellow participants, throughout the world. Webinars can be attended as interactive online sessions on Zoom, where sharing perspectives and asking questions to experts is encouraged.


Objectives

  • Explain the linkages between agriculture, food systems and nutrition
  • Describe existing opportunities for integrating nutrition into food system policies, investments and programmes
