Setting New Frontiers for 21st Century Food Systems Research and Action

  • PREVIEW
  • READ ARTICLE
  • OPEN PDF

ISSN

Food systems are at the core of our ability, as a 21st century society, to ensure sustainable development and well-being while arresting ballooning healthcare costs in industrialized and emerging economies alike. Food is at the nexus of the positive and negative externalities that agricultural, health, and other related systems have had on rural and urban communities worldwide since the onset of the industrial revolution. To go beyond what has been possible thus far, there is a need to reinvent food systems research and action so as to accelerate the scope and impact of significant sectoral and inter-sectoral investments made by governments, the private sector, civil society, and academia, for better convergence in efforts. This perspective features two pioneering initiatives in the nutrition research landscape: the CGIAR’s Agriculture for Nutrition and Health (A4NH) program, and the development and implementation of Convergent Innovation (CI) platforms.
