Looking at Food and Nutrition Security

At the International Conference on Food and Nutrition held recently in Beijing in China, I argued that in order to achieve better health and nutrition, the agenda for nutrition security needs to build on the linkages that exist between agriculture, health, and nutrition. In particular I proposed that a new agenda for nutrition security should build on the following four action principles: 1) fill the knowledge gaps; 2) do no harm; 3) seek out and scale up innovative solutions and 4) create an environment in which cooperation can thrive.
