Los sistemas agrícolas y alimentarios se enfrentan al reto de satisfacer la creciente demanda de más alimentos de mayor calidad, pero de una manera sostenible y equitativa que satisfaga las necesidades y preferencias nutricionales de los consumidores. ¿Cómo podemos avanzar para asegurarnos que la agricultura y los sistemas alimentarios están a la altura de esta misión?
Familiar with Moringa? I need your help! My name is Tyson Deal, and I am a graduate student at the University of Georgia pursuing a Master’s of Agricultural Leadership. I am conducting a study about Moringa and the limiting factors of its adoption and use for agricultural development.
I am looking for individuals to participate in a research study for my master’s thesis. The study involves answering questions regarding the subject of Moringa and agricultural development. If you would be interested to lend your expertise by participating in the study, if you have questions, or would like more information, please contact me or the primary investigator (PI) Maria Navarro at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are interested in participating, the link to the questionnaire is: https://ugeorgia.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_6Xy1dFhvC4VrQcB. Please feel also free to answer the questions in this Forum.
Your time, participation, and input are greatly appreciated. I thank you in advance for helping a graduate student and contributing to research for the greater-good.

My name is Salomeyesudas and I work as an independent consultant for several organizations in Tamil Nadu, India. Currently I am working on a research paper on public food systems for the Dhan Foundation.
In spite of the many public food distribution systems, India is facing nutritional emergencies and the prevalence of malnutrition remains very high.
One of the reasons is that food schemes are mainly based on the distribution of the energy-rich cereals wheat and rice but do not take the nutritional value of into account.
I would like to explore whether the introduction of different crops such as millets into the distribution system could yield improved nutritional outcomes.
In addition to case studies and example from India, I would be very grateful to receive information on other South Asian countries, such as Nepal and Sri Lanka.
This article summarizes the outcomes of an FSN Forum online discussion on Street Foods (September/October 2011). The discussion was part of a study carried out by FAO’s Regional Office for Africa on possible incentives to improve the safety, quality, and nutritional value of street foods.
