In just a few weeks, the CGIAR Challenge Program on Water and Food (CPWF) will come to an end. A new online learning portal was launched recently as a means of retaining the research and findings gathered during more than a decade of research for development.
Earlier this month, global policymakers at the 2nd Global Conference on Biofortification, committed to making biofortified nutritious foods more widely available in order to improve nutrition and health for millions of people around the world.
Nutrition and health are closely linked to agriculture, and CGIAR is exploring a variety of ways of using research to boost nutrition levels – with considerable success.
