The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the New Urban Agenda have both outlined the importance of creating inclusive cities and improving food and nutrition security. We cannot do one without the other. In order to plan cities for improved nutrition we will need the help of all actors (local and national governments, civil society, the private sector, and international organizations).
On Wednesday, 18 January 2017, the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), the SUN Business Network (SBN) and the International Food Policy and Research Institute (IFPRI) are hosting a panel discussion on “#UrbanNutrition: Eliminating Malnutrition in All its Forms in the Face of Unprecedented Rapid Urbanization” from 15:00 to 16:00 at the WFP tent, Promenade 139, Davos 7260, Switzerland.
- Shenggen Fan, Director General, IFPRI
- Fokko Wientjes, Vice-President Nutrition Emerging Markets, Royal DSM
- Lawrence Haddad, Executive Director, GAIN
This event will build upon the discussions from our recent official side event of Habitat III “Good Governance for Healthy and Sustainable Urban Food Systems” co-sponsored with Food Smart Cities for Development-an EU project coordinated by the City of Milan, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands.
Address: WFP Tent, Promenade 139, Davos 7260, Switzerland
