Trade, investment and nutrition: opportunities and challenges for policy coherence

Trade and investment liberalization has had far-reaching implications for food systems and nutrition. This seminar will examine the pathways through which trade impacts on nutrition, and explore opportunities to improve policy coherence in an era in which public health policy space is increasingly constrained by international trade and investment agreements.

The interaction between food, nutrition, and human disease is a rapidly evolving area of research. The Winter School’s program “Food & Health” will bridge the gap between different disciplines by offering a strong multidisciplinary environment, where students will have the opportunity to follow a variety of sequentially related courses on food quality and health. This Winter School program focusses on the most relevant aspects of food quality and human nutrition, in order to understand how they are related and how they affect human health, through dietary habits.

As interest in leveraging agriculture and food systems to optimise nutrition outcomes grows, there is an increasing demand for high quality metrics and methods to assess these causal mechanisms and evaluate policy and programme impacts.

During this webinar Round 1 IMMANA Fellows highlighted their research on developing new methodological approaches to guide agricultural interventions for nutrition improvement.

Animal-source foods (ASF) are some of the best sources of high-quality protein and micronutrients needed for healthy physical and cognitive development, especially among children. Livestock contributions to health and nutrition are complex, and are mediated through multiple pathways.

This webinar explored women's health and empowerment; critical factors that are frequently overlooked in agriculture and nutrition research. With the focus of interventions and studies so often centered on child and household indicators, IMMANA Grantees Amy Webb and Erin Lentz examined why women's empowerment matters; and reflect on the implications of its omission for women's health outcomes.

In food security, integration of data and knowledge across disciplines is needed to prevent food-related diseases, improve sustainability, traceability, quality, animal welfare, diminish food waste, have a clear picture of the environmental impact, improve communication to different stakeholders and introduce nutritional factors considering the enlarging need to ”feed the planet”.

20 March 2016

This seminar (and online webinar) addresses an important question for economic development in rural areas of low- and middle-income countries: if agriculture is to promote nutrition, do we need to take women’s time into account? LCIRAH and IFPRI recently funded a systematic review study aimed at understanding the role of time in agriculture-nutrition pathways.
