Webcast: Food systems and health in Sub-Saharan Africa

The United Nations University Office at the UN, New York (UNU-ONY), is organizing an event entitled “Food Systems and Health in Sub-Saharan Africa” presented by Per Pinstrup-Andersen, Professor at Cornell University and 2001 World Food Prize Laureate

The presentation will largely be based on a newly published book, “The African Food System and its Interactions with Human Health”, and it will focus on the most important interactions between food systems and human health, along with suggestions about policy priorities for African food systems that would improve human health.  It will also highlight the gains that result from collaborative action by researchers, policy-makers and program implementers in the health and food sectors.

The presentation is set for today, the 12th November at 13.15 (EST). This event will include a simultaneous live, interactive webcast.  Click here to register and to access the webcast.
