Policy Brief: Bringing Public and Private Sector Actors Closer Together in the Africa-EU Research and Innovation Partnership on Food and Nutrition Security

Expectations are high that the brand new research and innovation partnership between Africa and the EU in food and nutrition security and sustainable agriculture will make a tangible contribution to the human development priority area of the Joint Africa-EU Strategy. For this contribution to be realised in both regions and at scale, much stronger linkages need to be forged between publicly financed R&I actors, micro, small and medium-sized enterprises, and large-scale industrial players. How – and how soon – can this goal be achieved? This Policy Brief draws on results of original survey research undertaken by the Ministry of Higher Education and Research, Senegal, as part of its involvement in the CAAST-Net Plus project.

Launched Today: Global Nutrition Report 2016

http://l.caast-net-plus.org/jk

The Global Nutrition Report annually assesses country progress against global nutrition targets. According to a press release by the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFRI), the 2016 report “shows 44 percent of countries with data available (57 out of 129 countries) now experience very serious levels of both undernutrition and adult overweight and obesity, and that, despite good progress in some countries, the world is off track to reduce and reverse this trend”. The report is being launched on 14 June 2016 in a number of major cities globally, including Johannesburg, Nairobi and Stockholm. [Image credit: Global Nutrition Report 2016]
