This event was hosted by Mars Inc. and it was focused on two intervention strategies where the private sector could play prominent roles to help eliminate food insecurity: 1) Develop and deliver fortified nutritious food products to vulnerable populations, and 2) Seize opportunities to include nutrition in the agriculture production supply chain. The synergy between the two represent affordable and cost-effective strategies that the private sector can deploy now and expect several social, economic and health benefits, especially among women and young children.

On November 18 the private sector had a special pre-conference with the highest ranks of the UN organising bodies of ICN2: the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) & the World Health Organisation (WHO).

TRADE FOR FOOD SECURITY AND NUTRITION - Trade and policies that enable trade are critical to reducing poverty, advancing broad-based and sustainable economic growth, supporting jobs, raising living standards, enhancing food security, expanding the variety of products available to consumers, and helping people everywhere get accessible safe, affordable, nutritious food. The Addis Ababa Action Agenda of the Third International Conference on Financing for Development notes that “national development efforts need to be supported by an enabling international economic environment, including coherent and mutually supporting world trade, monetary and financial systems, and strengthened and enhanced global economic governance.”

Nutrition-Sensitive Agriculture - FAO defines nutrition-sensitive agriculture as a food-based approach to agricultural development that puts nutrient-dense foods, dietary diversity, and food fortification at the heart of overcoming malnutrition and micronutrient deficiencies. This approach stresses the multiple benefits derived from enjoying a variety of foods, recognizing the nutritional value of food for health. The overall objective of nutrition-sensitive agriculture is to promote healthy diets by better equipping food systems to deliver safe, affordable and nutritious food.
