McGill Centre for the Convergence of Health and Economics (MCCHE) (https://www.mcgill.ca/desautels/mcche) introduced Pulse Innovation Platform (https://www.mcgill.ca/desautels/mcche/research/pip/what-pip) as an open invitation forum where members network and connect to identify bottlenecks hindering innovation, and develop solutions beyond what individual members can achieve alone. PIP takes a convergent innovation approach for a game-changing multistakeholder partnerships (MSPs) model, targets the behavioral change and ecosystem transformation required in both the industrialized world and emerging economies and targets a sweet spot, considering agriculture, health, and wealth outcomes together and leveraging them in a holistic manner to better harness the power of business and jointly target economic growth and human development. This PIP model has the potentiality to develop policy approaches that could be beneficial to increasing the role of this crop in different regions.
I think both export and import of food from a country will have to be considered to understand the linkage the trade and food security because both have the impacts on the aspects of food security. A country import food to ensure food availability. On the other hand a country exports food to earn foreign currency which may use to buy food also.
