Food system transformation towards healthier diets requires a thorough understanding and appreciation of the diet-food system linkages. This project will focus on awareness raising and capacity building about these linkages, through formal and informal training, but also through comparative learning in systematically assessment of synergies and differences in scaling and anchoring options for food system transformation linked to changing dietary patterns within and across countries. The goal is to compare different pathways toward healthier and more sustainable diets in relation to varying market and institutional conditions through partnerships and platforms.

A4NH: The Food System for Healthier Diets
Food systems are made up of all the people, processes, and activities involved in getting food from where it is grown to where it is eaten. These systems are changing fast, especially in low- and middle-income countries. How can we be sure this transformation provides people with healthy and sustainable access to foods? This video from the CGIAR Research Program on Agriculture for Nutrition and Health (A4NH) explains the challenges, opportunities, and issues involved in food systems transformation.
