Climate Change and Nutrition


IFPRI Seminar: Climate resilience, sustainable food systems and healthy diets: Can we have it all?

Tuesday, October 31, 2017
12:15 pm to 1:45 pm (EDT)

The upcoming COP23 will focus attention on how to achieve the goals set by the Paris Agreement while also pursuing the Sustainable Development Goals. Meeting these goals will require long-term planning capacity at the country level. New research from IFPRI and partners provides insight into tools and approaches—including system thinking, multi-objective analysis, and scenario assessment in support of decision-making processes—that can support policy analysis.

This seminar will discuss these recent advances, which can contribute to building broad resilience in food production systems, while helping to meet the new global goals.
