Venue

Online webinar
UN-ESCAP (United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific), Agreenium (l’Institut agronomique, vétérinaire et forestier de France) and FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations), are organizing a series of free and open technical webinars in 2019. The first one is entitled “Sustainable Food Systems and Nutrition: Making Agriculture and Food Systems Nutrition-Sensitive”.

Background

This is the first of a series of free and open technical webinars that are organized by UN-ESCAP (United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific), Agreenium (l’Institut agronomique, vétérinaire et forestier de France) and FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations), in 2019.

These technical webinars are focused on a number of thematic areas related to the global challenges humanity is facing and are an opportunity for all of us to share experiences and lessons learned, discuss challenges and propose innovative solutions and models. The idea, for each thematic area, is to bring together the “development” perspective from one side and the latest findings in “innovation and research” on the other, in order to give participants a holistic and comprehensive view on the global trends and challenges.

Objectives

  • Explain the linkages between agriculture, food systems and nutrition
  • Describe existing opportunities for integrating nutrition into food system policies, investments and programmes
  • Explain the importance of sustainable nutrition-sensitive food systems

Speakers

This technical webinar will be delivered by Ms Kathryn Ogden, Senior programme policy officer – nutrition-sensitive, World Food Programme (WFP) and Ms Sylvie Avallone, Professor Montpellier SupAgro, and moderated by Ms Domitille Kauffmann, Nutrition Expert.
