AGRF 2016: High-Level Roundtable on Agriculture, Food Systems and Nutrition

The roundtable brought together African leaders in agriculture and health to discuss opportunities for the agricultural community to achieve nutrition security through healthy diets. It aimed for renewed policy commitment to achieve positive linkages between agriculture and nutrition, and to shape national and regional food systems that will reinforce these linkages in a sustainable way. The event also built on the current political momentum arising from the recently endorsed UN Decade of Action on Nutrition and the African Leaders for Nutrition initiative.
