This past June, HarvestPlus and the UK Department for International Development (DFID) co-hosted a meeting in Brussels to discuss the potential of agricultural-based approaches, such as biofortification, to reduce malnutrition.
The event featured a wide range of presenters from research and policy fields. To follow-up on IFPRI’s 2020 Conference, the first panel discussed how biofortification can fit into initiatives to leverage agriculture for improved nutrition and health. New research results and developments were also presented. The event concluded with a brainstorming session to identify next steps for moving biofortification and HarvestPlus forward.
