Who we are
The ANH Academy brings together researchers, practitioners and policymakers working for better nutrition and health through improved agriculture and food systems. This network is housed within the IMMANA programme, which funds innovative Grants, Fellowships and research synthesis projects like SCANR to strengthen tools, capacity and evidence in agriculture and food systems research.
About ANH Academy
The Agriculture, Nutrition and Health (ANH) Academy brings together researchers, practitioners and policymakers working for better nutrition and health through improved agriculture and food systems.
With over 5,700 members from 145+ countries, the ANH Academy is a global network and platform for sharing research and evidence, capacity strengthening and collaboration across diverse disciplines. The ANH Academy also shares methods and metrics developed through IMMANA grants and fellowships.
The Innovative Methods and Metrics for Agriculture and Nutrition Actions (IMMANA) programme aims to improve nutrition and health by strengthening tools, capacity and evidence in agriculture and food systems research.
Through competitive research grants and fellowships, interdisciplinary collaboration and cutting-edge synthesis, this five-year programme will accelerate the development of a robust scientific evidence base needed to guide changes in global agriculture and food systems to feed the world’s population in a way that is both healthy and sustainable
The Support Centre for Agriculture and Nutrition Research (SCANR) connects researchers with data and resources to carry out secondary data syntheses related to agriculture, food systems, nutrition, and health. The SCANR web tool connects users to resources and provides expert critical perspectives for each stage of the research process - from identifying research questions and methods to finding, managing, and analysing data, to communicating results effectively.
