Improving the nutrition and health of poor people

CGIAR Research Program on Agriculture for Nutrition and Health

Agriculture has made remarkable advances in the past decades, but progress in improving the nutrition and health of poor farmers and consumers in developing countries is lagging behind. The CGIAR research program on Agriculture for nutrition and health (A4NH) is designed to fill the existing gap between agricultural development and its unfulfilled health and nutritional benefits. The starting point is that agricultural practices, interventions, and policies can be better adapted and redesigned to maximize health and nutrition benefits and reduce health risks.
