Track: Food systems
A cross-track plenary with Food Systems Track, this session will bring a special focus on climate change and emergencies - two major, and often interrelated, causes of food insecurity and malnutrition. This session will present perspectives on how climate change is affecting global nutrition, health and micronutrient intakes. The current shape and form of nutrition emergency responses, which are largely limited to focusing on treatment of acute malnutrition and meeting calories will not cut it, and this session will demonstrate the need to improve the quality of diets for women and children during emergencies and innovative ways to do things differently. The session also includes a case study examining the intersection of climate change and emergencies in the Sahel and a panel discussion.
