a4nh annual report
2015

The CGIAR Research Program on Agriculture for Nutrition and Health (A4NH) completed a successful third full year in 2014, with demonstrated progress in a number of areas. The delivery of biofortified crops surpassed 1 million farming households, work on aflatoxin control evolved beyond the pilot stage, and a team of researchers contributed to the development of a new global indicator to measure women’s dietary diversity. Several major events took place, including a consultation in Rwanda to mobilize partners on scaling up delivery of biofortification, and another in India to share evidence and experiences on improving nutrition. New and exciting outputs ranged from the Global Nutrition Report 2014, which examined the state of the world’s nutrition, to a Safe Food, Fair Food book which synthesized lessons from 10 years of food safety research in Africa. The year included an evaluation of our food safety component and the start of an external evaluation, as well as initial preparations for a second phase of work which will begin in 2017.
