The Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Nutrition has launched the 4th Annual Agriculture to Nutrition Scientific Symposium in Kathmandu, Nepal: "Minding the Gaps Along the Agriculture-to-Nutrition Pathway." This symposium is a platform to share research findings, program evaluations, and evidence-based policy initiatives on multi-sectoral approaches to improve the nutrition and health of people in Nepal.
Sessions will address multi-sectoral approaches to enhance and link nutritious food production, modern and traditional food technology and systems, market diversity, marketing, environmental protection, economic well-being, household nutrition and food security, women’s empowerment, and dietary intake to improving nutritional status in Nepal.
Interactive academic sessions will seek to strengthen understanding and competencies on designing, assessment methods, implementing and analyzing and interpreting data – critical elements of quality research – to build evidence of impact for nutrition-sensitive programs and policy development in Nepal. The symposium is intended to highlight existing and strengthen future research in Nepal that can improve food security, diets and nutritional status.
