Integrating Agriculture, Nutrition Is Critical to Eliminate Malnutrition

The Guardian: Can agriculture play a bigger role in solving malnutrition?
Marc Van Ameringen, executive director of the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN)

“…Forging stronger links between agriculture and nutrition sectors is a critical big part of eliminating malnutrition. So we need to start using the investments pledged in London for programs on the ground in countries around the world. Let’s start developing more programs that combine multiple interventions across agriculture and nutrition, and also more aggressively begin building markets for nutritious foods that reach the poor” (2/21).
