The INGENAES Global Symposium and learning exchange will be held in Lusaka January 23 – 25, 2017. The event convenes partners from across the globe and will offer many opportunities for sharing tools, methods, approaches, perspectives, experiences, lessons learned about what to do and what to avoid when trying provide more equitable support to both men and women farmers and contribute to improved nutrition.
We invite you to join us at IFSTAL’s Public Lecture given by renowned investigative journalist Sheila Dillon, of BBC’s The Food Programme. The lecture will be on the relationship between food systems and the media, touching on a wide range of issues from food production, trade and the environment to health, consumption and waste. It will be held in the Brunei Gallery Lecture Theatre at SOAS, University of London, on Monday 5th December from 6pm.
Invitation to take part in an interactive policy game on sustainable diets: Thursday 24 November, 10am - 1:00pm (refreshments provided, 20 places only)
As interest in leveraging agriculture and food systems to optimise nutrition outcomes grows, there is an increasing demand for high quality metrics and methods to assess these causal mechanisms and evaluate policy and programme impacts.
While animal source foods (ASF) have the potential to improve health and nutrition of children in the first 1000 days, challenges remain in connecting market-led livestock interventions to ASF consumption in producer and rural households. Land O’Lakes International Development, in collaboration with the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI), International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) and the U.S.
The GODAN Summit will bring together world leaders, researchers, farmers, students and others – public, private and non-profit united around a collaboration on agriculture and nutrition data openness. Join the largest event ever planned for open data in agriculture and nutrition. The goals of the Summit are to illustrate the opening, the use, and the importance of agriculture and nutrition data.
Transforming gender relations in agriculture through women’s empowerment: benefits, challenges and trade-offs for improving nutrition outcomes
The Agriculture, Nutrition & Health (ANH) Academy invites the global community of ANH researchers and users of this research to the first ANH Academy Week to be held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on 20-24 June 2016
This webinar explored women's health and empowerment; critical factors that are frequently overlooked in agriculture and nutrition research. With the focus of interventions and studies so often centered on child and household indicators, IMMANA Grantees Amy Webb and Erin Lentz examined why women's empowerment matters; and reflect on the implications of its omission for women's health outcomes.
Animal-source foods (ASF) are some of the best sources of high-quality protein and micronutrients needed for healthy physical and cognitive development, especially among children. Livestock contributions to health and nutrition are complex, and are mediated through multiple pathways.
In food security, integration of data and knowledge across disciplines is needed to prevent food-related diseases, improve sustainability, traceability, quality, animal welfare, diminish food waste, have a clear picture of the environmental impact, improve communication to different stakeholders and introduce nutritional factors considering the enlarging need to ”feed the planet”.
This seminar (and online webinar) addresses an important question for economic development in rural areas of low- and middle-income countries: if agriculture is to promote nutrition, do we need to take women’s time into account? LCIRAH and IFPRI recently funded a systematic review study aimed at understanding the role of time in agriculture-nutrition pathways.
