Leveraging agriculture for improving nutrition and health

Agriculture, nutrition, and health are linked in many obvious and not-so-obvious ways, and these links have important consequences for the lives of millions of poor people in developing countries. Yet despite these potentially strong synergies, many policymakers and practitioners in these areas continue to work in isolation.

IFPRI undertook this global policy conference on February 10-12, 2011, in New Delhi, India,” in order to bring these sectors together and unleash the potential of agriculture—as a supplier of food, as a source of income, and as an engine of growth—to sustainably reduce malnutrition and ill health for the world’s most vulnerable people.
