Leaders in all low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) are facing an immediate dilemma. The need to transform their food systems is growing ever more urgent to deliver on hunger and nutrition, climate change adaptation, and sustainability. Moreover, universal access to diets that are affordable, healthy, and sustainable is a prerequisite to deliver on green growth, poverty reduction, and equity. Yet at the same time, LMICs are experiencing ever-tightening financial resources, as the growing debt crisis and inflation bite ever deeper. Transforming food systems across the world will be costly. Though not all decisions require heavy investment. In this webinar, we discuss a surprisingly diverse range of actions that are relatively low-cost, or even cost-neutral as put forth by the Global Panel in their policy brief on 'Pursuing food system transformation despite financial constraints'.
With a panel discussion from Dr Adeyinka Onabolu, Senior Advisor on Food Security & Nutrition-GAIN Nigeria, Prof Amos Laar, Professor of Public Health Nutrition at the University of Ghana, Sir John Beddington, Global Panel Chair and Tom Arnold, Global Panel Member. Director of the Food Systems for Nutrition Innovation lab and technical advisor to the Panel, Prof Patrick Webb, will present the new policy brief.
