Innovative Multi-Sector Partnerships for Affordable Nutritious Food
19 October 2021 13:35 - 14:05
Our current food system is not able to nourish people and planet in a sustainable way. One third of the worlds population is malnourished. In many developing countries more the ¾ of the population cannot afford a healthy diet.
We need innovation and close collaboration of partners from various sectors to work together to design solutions that are sustainable, healthy, affordable, reliable, and preferable (sharp!).
When co-creating and address the multiple constraints together, using capabilities from parties that are normally not closely connected, we can reformulate solutions reaching poorer consumer groups and support to bridge some of the gap they have in their diets.
Examples from south-north partnerships are presented from the milk and fruit value chains
New partners are encouraged to get engaged and inspire, lean, collaborate via the Scaling Up Nutrition Business network (SBN): https://sunbusinessnetwork.org/, or via the Innovative Food System Solutions portal (IFSS): https://ifssportal.nutritionconnect.org/
