The Food and Nutrition Security Training programme of the Centre for Development Innovation - Wageningen UR is pleased to announce the organisation of the

‘International Course on Agriculture Nutrition Linkages, to be held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia from November 24 – December 5 2014’.

Recent data shows that despite investments and efforts in agriculture and nutrition still 952 million people are chronically hungry and 162 million children under five are affected by chronic undernutrition for life.
Producing enough food for everyone is not enough, food and nutrition security is about the nutritional quality and diversity of that food. Linking the disciplinary fields of agriculture and nutrition is a new field for enhanced efforts to combatting hunger and malnutrition.
As a participant in this course you will gain increased insights into how the fields of agriculture, agricultural development, food production and food security can contribute to reduced malnutrition in population groups.
The course will provide practical tools to increase the nutritional benefits of agricultural programmes and to reduce their potential negative impacts on nutrition.
The course has a clear agricultural economic approach and addresses agricultural development along food value chains.
