The ANH Academy Week is an annual event, aimed at sharing evidence and analysis of the linkages between agriculture and food systems for improved nutrition and health, and of the disconnects along the agriculture-nutrition pathway.

The Symposium also offered the opportunity to share the key messages of the Global Panel’s Foresight report. Addressing the audience during his closing remarks, Prof Patrick Webb, Global Panel Technical Adviser, considered the extent to which food systems are delivering healthy diets and highlighted entry points for policy.
