The impact of COVID-19 on food and nutrition: solutions from the G20
The G20 countries must play a crucial role in promoting more sustainable agri-food systems and ensuring health systems are supported as the primary mechanism for delivering programs to fight malnutrition, ensuring no one is left behind. These topics were discussed during a high-level, closed-door webinar organized on May 20, by IAI in cooperation with the ACTION Global Health Advocacy Partnership. The workshop facilitated an examination of how the Italian G20 Presidency can provide collective and coordinated leadership to tackle present and future food crises, promote nutrition-sensitive approaches, and allocate adequate financial resources to support a One Health approach to food security and nutrition. IAI and ACTION will use the findings of the workshop to draft a briefing paper that will be published in July 2021 and presented during a Think20-related public webinar.
