ATNI amplifying the nutrition voice at COP2711 November 2022
Nutrition and sustainability are inextricably linked, and for the first time ever, food systems have been put squarely on the agenda at COP27.
How did it take so long considering that 30% of greenhouse gas emissions comes from the food system? Moreover, climate change has an enormous impact on food and nutrition security as it can affect food availability, costs and overall calorie consumption, as well as the quality of foods consumed.
More than ever, it is essential that food systems provide affordable and healthy diets to maintain good health without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their nutritional needs.
ATNI recognizes this, and in line with our new strategy (2023-2028), we are refreshing our methodology in 2023 to include information on the intersection between nutrition and sustainability for our global and country nutrition benchmarking tools.
ATNI is excited to be one of the many organizations championing nutrition at COP27. Join us at the events our Executive Director, Greg S Garrett, is speaking at!
