The EAT Stockholm Food Forum 2019 incorporates nutrition, health and sustainability: it is an arena where science, politics and business will be able to share insight and ideas to reach the shared goal of sustainably feeding a healthy world population.
Population growth, climate change, human health, resource management, sustainability and food security are independent fields of science and research — but they are also important political issues and exciting business opportunities. By creating an informal forum, which encourages dialogue and discourse, EAT will bring together leading scientists, policymakers and business professionals for the express purpose of cross-fertilization.
CIMMYT’s maize quality specialist Natalia Palacios Rojas will be one of the panelists of a side event organized by CGIAR.
“Road testing healthy diets: Perspectives from the Global South”
Friday, June 14, 2019
10:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., Pluto room, 3rd floor (Open Event)
This session will provide an entry point to examine the EAT-Lancet recommendations from a low- and medium-income countries perspective where most food is grown by small-scale producers. It will look at gender-equitable approaches to the sustainable intensification of small-scale farming, expanding access to markets and the implications of the global diet on health and nutrition outcomes in societies characterized by rapid urbanization and population growth.
