Agricultural and Food Systems Transformation for Better Food Security and Nutrition in Eurasia

Significant changes in Eurasia’s agri-food systems and regional trade in the 2000s have had major impacts on food and nutrition security.

This seminar will discuss recent developments in the political economy and food and nutrition security policies across six diverse countries in the region—Armenia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russian Federation, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan—and what the agri-food transformation means for future policy and research.
