February 27 - March 1, 2019 
University 
of Hohenheim, Stuttgart (Germany)

The 4th Congress Hidden Hunger is a continuation of the successful, international event series "Congress Hidden Hunger" which started in 2013 in Stuttgart, Germany. As in case of the previous congresses in this series, the 4th Congress Hidden Hunger taking place in 2019 will bring together members of different disciplines: nutritionists, agricultural scientists, economists and sociologists.

The Congress will encourage the dialogue between scientists, policy-makers and representatives of non-governmental organizations and the private sector. It will review the available evidence on the double burden problem, present new research findings on underlying causes and consequences, feature innovative strategies to deal with the problem and discuss the roles and responsibilities of governments, development organizations, civil society and the private sector in combating the double burden of malnutrition.
