ANH Academy Week 2017 - Resources
The Agriculture, Nutrition & Health (ANH) Academy in partnership with the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Nutrition jointly hosted the 2nd Agriculture, Nutrition and Health (ANH) Academy week and the 5th Annual Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Nutrition (Nutrition Innovation Lab) Agriculture-Nutrition Scientific Symposium on 9-13 July 2017 in Kathmandu, Nepal.
The ANH Academy Week is an annual event open to the global research community, which expands on the successful history of events and conferences co-hosted by Leverhulme Centre for Integrative Research on Agriculture and Health (LCIRAH) and the CGIAR Research Program on Agriculture for Nutrition and Health (A4NH), alongside Innovative Methods and Metrics for Agriculture and Nutrition Action (IMMANA). The Nutrition Innovation Lab’s annual scientific symposium similarly, has been a forum for Nepali scientists to present research on nutrition, agriculture and health as well as to network and interact with their peers within Nepal and outside. The annual symposia supported by USAID has been successfully organized since 2013 by Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy, Tufts University with its co-hosts the Institute of Medicine, Tribhuvan University (IOM), Nepal Agricultural Research Council (NARC) and the Nepali Technical Assistance Group (NTAG). The goal of each annual event has been to facilitate the sharing and learning of evidence on linkages between agriculture and food systems for improved nutrition and health and linkages and disconnects along the agriculture- nutrition pathway. Additional support and collaboration in delivering 2017’s Academy Week came from the Leveraging Agriculture for Nutrition in South Asia (LANSA) research programme.
