    Economic Implications Feedback from breakout session 10 for plenary Economic Implications Feedback from breakout session 10 for plenary Presentation Transcript

    • Economic Implications Breakout Session 10
    • Areas where progress has been made • Systematic conceptualization of food systems to understand the links between ag. and nutrition
    • Knowledge gaps • Harmonized protocol for collecting food security and consumption data • How to replicate successful boutique operations cost- effectively? How to sustain success after the “project” (financial sustainability)? • Role of different food commodities in achieving appropriate diet accessible to the poor • Implications for policy including trade-offs and substitution effects • Demand analysis (market, culture etc.) to identify appropriate design interventions (emphasize demand creation, tackle cultural taboos, nutrition education, profitability etc.)
    • Examples of partnerships • Research org. to pilot innovative approach with active engagement of Govt, to be scaled up with additional donor or national support • A4NH’s coordination role in forming multisectoral teams across expertise and commodities
    • Innovative scientific approaches • Acknowledge role of medium/large farmers when needed • Shift from production dominated research agenda to a stronger focus on consumption (urban & rural) – can we feed the world a adequate nutritious diet? • Long-term projections to underlie longer-term research: Systems approach/scenario analysis to put nutrition objectives into a food systems context, and how different food systems contribute to an appropriate diet • Analyze net-benefit by explicitly addressing unintended negative impacts (women’s time, zoonotic etc.)
