The second in a series of collaborative Ag2Nut webinars about the UN State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World Report (SOFI) 2020, this webinar focuses on the hidden environmental and health impacts of diets. Dr. Marco Springmann, who did the analysis, will explain the methods and results comparing current consumption patterns at national level, to healthier and more sustainable consumption patterns. The results highlight the need to shift globally toward diets that are both healthy and environmentally sustainable. Prof. Joyce Kinabo will reflect on how sustainability and health are being discussed in the development of FBDG in Africa, and more broadly, what is needed for sustainable and healthy food systems in Africa.

Join us for a discussion about the implications of these findings for agriculture and food systems, moderated by Anna Herforth.
