Critical Action for Nutrition Equity (July 23)
Recent developments – including the COVID-19 pandemic – have highlighted that our food and nutrition systems have not treated populations in developed or developing countries equally. Those suffering from the outcome of inequities-the poor, women and children, minorities, refugees and those living in fragile or conflict states-are disproportionately experiencing the negative consequences of hunger and undernourishment.

Today, the ultimate outcome of this disparity is glaring. Globally, 1 out of 9 people is hungry or undernourished while 1 out of 3 is overweight or obese. Many countries are experiencing the double burden of malnutrition, where undernutrition coexists with overweight, obesity and other diet-related non-communicable diseases (NCD’s).

Join FAO North America and the Alliance to End Hunger for a panel of global food and nutrition experts who will discuss the effects of inequitable food systems on nutrition and share sustainable solutions in both policy and practice.

Featured Speakers:
Renata Micha, Research Associate Professor at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University, Co-Chair, Global Nutrition Report’s Independent Expert Group.
Stineke Oenema, Coordinator of the UN Standing Committee on Nutrition.
Jessica Fanzo, Bloomberg Distinguished Professor of Global Food & Agricultural Policy and Ethics/ Director, Johns Hopkins Global Food Ethics and Policy Program.
Leslie Elder, Senior Nutrition Specialist, Global Financing Facility (GFF) Secretariat, World Bank
Asma Lateef, Interim Executive Director, Alliance to End Hunger/Director, Bread for the World Institute (Moderator)
