Despite the world-wide increase of food availability 1 out of 3 people are malnourished due to undernourishment, micronutrient deficiencies and/or overweight. Evidence shows that malnutrition has life-long detrimental impacts on learning capacity, productivity and income-generating potential of populations.
The sustainable development goals aim to end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture by year 2030.
Agriculture plays a key role in the provision of food and nutrition security. But agricultural programs and policies do not automatically lead to better nourished populations. In some cases these programs and policies can even be detrimental to the nutritional situation of vulnerable groups. Agricultural programs and policies need to take nutrition outcomes into account.

This course focus on how agricultural programs and policies can become nutrition sensitive to achieve the nutrition objectives. In addition, we will explore the different agricultural pathways leading to food and nutrition security. Experts will facilitate the course to provide you with the knowledge and skills to design and strengthen the implementation of nutrition sensitive agricultural programs and policies. The course is highly interactive, building on the participant?s own experiences and cases.
