Brussels Briefing on ACP nutrition security: the key role for agriculture

Hereby, we cordially invite you to a Brussels Development Policy Briefing on the topic of Nutrition security in ACP countries, to be held on 15th June 2011 from 8.30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Borschette Conference Centre in Brussels (Rue Froissart 36). Given that malnutrition is either directly or indirectly responsible for approximately half of all deaths worldwide, the Briefing will discuss the key challenges and opportunities for achieving nutrition security, especially in the context of ACP countries, and the policies and actions to improve the linkages between agriculture and nutrition in future. It is organised by the Technical Centre on Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA), the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), the European Commission (DG DEVCO), the ACP Secretariat and CONCORD. Among the speakers, we are pleased to receive Dr Jose Graziano da Silva, Assistant Director General of the FAO and Regional Representative for Latin America and the Caribbean, Boitshepo Giyose, Senior Food and Nutrition Security Advisor at NEPAD and others.
