Improving Nutrition Outcomes in Food Systems and their Benefits to Climate Action

This new publication by GIZ explores the overlap between climate-smart food production and nutrition sensitive food consumption. The policy brief gives an overview of the global climate challenge, the global nutrition crisis and links the two by proposing so called “demand side measures”. This group of actions includes food loss and waste reduction and changes in human diets towards products that are less GHG intensive.

Concrete examples are presented on how industrialized and developed countries alike have started tackling this challenge by strengthening urban-rural linkages in food systems, linking nutrition outcomes to climate change outcomes, and mainstreaming nutrition outcomes across sectors beyond agriculture.
