The event Unleashing Agriculture’s Potential For Nutrition & Health in Malawi will draw from the key global recommendations from the 2020 International Conference in Delhi and examine how these can be applied to the country specific level. Malawi’s experiences tackling agriculture, health, and nutrition issues provide a starting point to guide and inform how to create more synergies between the three sectors.
