World Vegetable Center Strategy 2017-2025: Healthier lives, more resilient livelihoods

With more than 2 billion people worldwide lacking the vitamins and minerals needed for good health, and another 2 billion struggling with overweight, obesity and the chronic diseases they cause, it’s clear our food systems must change—to nourish people, not merely feed them.

In 2016-2017, World Vegetable Center staff, board members, and partners embarked on a series of meetings and discussions to develop a new strategy that better orients the Center to realize the immense potential of vegetables to improve nutrition and incomes.

World Vegetable Center Strategy 2017-2025: Healthier lives, more resilient livelihoods introduces a new structure in which discovery research, piloting innovations, and scaling best technologies and practices continuously inform and improve the Center’s work and impact.
