How can value chains be shaped to improve nutrition?
In March 2017 the Working Group on Nutrition-Sensitive Value Chains of the Rome-based Agencies (FAO, IFAD, WFP and Bioversity International) launched the online consultation How can value chains be shaped to improve nutrition? The consultation was held on the FAO Global Forum on Food Security and Nutrition (FSN Forum) from 27 March to 19 April 2017.
The aim of this initiative was to engage stakeholders in identifying challenges and opportunities related to nutritionsensitive value chain (NSVC) development. Participants discussed their experiences relating to past or ongoing NSVC experiences on the ground, and were also invited to comment on the discussion paper “Inclusive value chains for sustainable agriculture and scaled up food security and nutrition outcomes” prepared by the Working Group.
