Invitation to take part in an interactive policy game on sustainable diets: Thursday 24 November, 10am - 1:00pm (refreshments provided, 20 places only)

26 October 2016

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.

During this webinar Round 1 IMMANA Fellows highlighted their research on developing new methodological approaches to guide agricultural interventions for nutrition improvement.

17 October 2016

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.

15 September 2016

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

20 June 2016

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

7 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.

2 June 2016

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.

23 March 2016

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”.

22 March 2016

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.

16 March 2016

Although food-price subsidies are widely used to improve nutritional status of the poor, their effectiveness in improving nutritional status is still controversial. This paper proposes a new analytical framework to investigate the effectiveness by taking into account asymmetric impacts of introducing and removing the subsidies and by employing a non -income poverty measure (i.e., staple cereal shares).

10 March 2016

Our final IFSTAL lecture of the series for this academic year will be held at RVC Camden, with the lecture live streamed from Oxford. 

Whilst we'll be addressing serious issues of Future Food Systems with a panel of experts from Oxford, we'll be finishing with some gaming led by one of the panellists, and then locally in London a wine and nibbles reception to socialise and a food systems quiz with prizes for the winning team!

25 February 2016

At this Event in London, Dr Barbara Haesler from LCIRAH, Dr Claire Marris and Prof Tim Lang from the Centre for Food Policy at City University London will tell us about their experiences of being involved in informing and researching interventions to shape the food system. The audience then will have the opportunity to work in multidisciplinary groups and critically engage with different food system governance initiatives (i.e. initiatives that seek to change or reform the wider food system in some way, based on case studies).

28 January 2016

While there is a growing literature on the inter-linkages and synergies between agriculture and other sectors, somewhat less is known about how much coherence there is in practice at a policy and institutional level, and whether and how to bring about such synergies. Drawing from research carried out by the Overseas Development Institute for the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation on the question of coherence between agriculture and social protection, the presentation will focus on the cases of Zambia and Ghana.
