ANH2020 Learning Lab: Affordability of Nutritious Diets


  • Anna Herforth, Ag2Nut 

  • Will Masters, Tufts University 

Description and Learning Objectives

This learning lab will equip participants with skills to use food prices for understanding the cost of nutritious diets. In this session we discuss sources of food price data, and use data from countries in Africa and South Asia to measure trends over time, seasonal fluctuations and spatial differences. We will use prices of diverse foods to compute price indices including the cost of nutrient adequacy and the cost of recommended diets.
