Boyd is speaking at
Malnutrition in all its forms, including undernutrition, overweight and obesity, and other dietary risks, is responsible for more global illness than any other cause. Current food production practices are pushing environmental systems beyond safe boundaries and contributing to climate change, with additional detrimental effects for human health, as well as for planetary health. Addressing the systemic drivers of these challenges is crucial to achieve progress. This panel will explore how we can work more collaborative in identifying and implementing “win-win” solutions, and the roles and responsibilities of different stakeholders within such efforts.
