South Asia symposium: The Food Systems Approach to tackling hunger and malnutrition

Meeting the Sustainable Development Goal 2 of Zero Hunger requires a holistic approach to food systems and this will mean reshaping and reforming those systems to deliver healthy, nutritious diets and reduce environmental and carbon footprints. Participants at a Dec. 4 high-level symposium in New Delhi—organized by IFPRI and India’s premier public think tank, NITI Aayog (National Institution for Transforming India)—discussed the wide-ranging implications of these changes for South Asia.
