Food Systems: Harnessing nutrition co-benefits of climate resilient agriculture

13:30 – 15:00 CEST

Climate change, food systems and food and nutrition security are strongly interlinked. The food we eat and how we produce it will determine the health of people and planet. Extreme weather and climate events have increased in frequency, intensity and severity.

Climate change has an impact on livelihoods and food choices, undermining current efforts to reduce hunger and promote nutrition. We know that major changes must be made to food systems to increase access to affordable, healthy diets for everyone.

Join us, with panellists from academia, research, governments, civil society and development agencies, to discuss the climate-nutrition nexus, including:

  • The body of evidence showing the interlinkages between climate and nutrition and the existing research gaps
  • The potential solutions, that optimise synergies between climate change and nutrition and minimise trade-offs
  • The policy and programmatic approaches adopted by governments and development partners to address present and future challenges.

Learn about four new publications on the benefits of investing in approaches that integrate climate-smart and nutrition-sensitive approaches.

 

The climate-nutrition nexus: linkages and implications

In a 5-minute explainer video, IFAD and WCDI illustrate the conceptual linkages between climate change and nutrition: “How is climate change affecting nutrition and vice versa?”

By following Jane, a young farmer from Zimbabwe, the linkages and implications of the climate-nutrition nexus are explained. Examples of interventions in tackling malnutrition and taking climate action are also provided. This video can be used for many purposes to encourage discussion around the climate-nutrition nexus.
