Reshaping Agriculture for Nutrition and Health

Publisher: International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) | 2012 | ISBN: 0896296733 | 228 Pages | PDF | 2 MB

The fundamental purpose of agriculture is not just to produce food and raw materials, but also to grow healthy, well-nourished people. One of the sector's most important tasks then is to provide food of sufficient quantity and quality to feed and nourish the world's population sustainably so that all people can lead healthy, productive lives. Achieving this goal will require closer collaboration across the sectors of agriculture, nutrition, and health, which have long operated in separate spheres with little recognition of how their actions affect each other. It is time for agriculture, nutrition, and health to join forces in pursuit of the common goal of improving human well-being. In Reshaping Agriculture for Nutrition and Health, leading experts, practitioners, and policymakers explore the links among agriculture, nutrition, and health and identify ways to strengthen related policies and programs. The chapters in this book were originally commissioned as background papers or policy briefs for the conference "Leveraging Agriculture for Improving Nutrition and Health," facilitated by the International Food Policy Research Institute's 2020 Vision Initiative in New Delhi, India, in February 2011.
