Ag2Nut Call: Nutrition Indicators in Agriculture

Event Location

Appropriate indicators for measuring nutrition impacts in agriculture is a topic that has received much discussion, both in the Agriculture to Nutrition online community, and generally in the field. The September 2016 call topic was on "Nutrition Indicators in Agriculture," featuring several recent publications supported by FAO. 

Two publications on this topic were released in September 2016. Several other 2016 publications deal with specific areas of measurement and support the overall conversation on nutrition indicators in agriculture. Authors of these documents were on the call to introduce them to the CoP.
