Agriculture and nutrition go hand-in-hand

It has been estimated that our global world population will hit 1 billion in 2050. According to the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), developing more nutritious diets is closely linked to improving agriculture, adding that “the high rates of malnutrition among farming communities are a stark reminder that the link between agriculture and nutrition is broken”.

However, there are many people and organisations working to improve how food is being grown to ensure that developing communities have sufficient nutritious food to be able to enjoy healthy, productive lives.

Watch this video from GAIN as they explore a number of organisations and people working in East Africa to bring nutritious local foods to their local communities. these stories are snapshots from GAIN’s first in a series of Snapshot Reports, Cultivating Nutritious Food Systems.
