Description

Malawi has prioritized improving food security for its people through maize-oriented policies and investments. This has, however, come at a cost of losing agricultural diversity and the nutrition benefits from diversified diets. Today, with undernutrition remaining unresolved, integrating agriculture, nutrition policies and institutional frameworks are more critical than ever. Against this background, the CLIM2 Policy Dialog event, under the EU-funded CLIM2 project (https://clim.icrisat.org), brought together policy makers, researchers, district-level agricultural extension and nutrition coordinators, food industry representatives, and small-scale producers to examine the various dynamic linkages between agri-food value chains and nutrition.
