Nutrition policy dialogue to address food security, nourishment
As part of efforts to strengthen and increase understanding of the linkages between climate change, food security and nutrition and improving policies and practices for nutrition security, the Nigeria Health Watch will, on Thursday, June 22, host the 2023 Nutrition Policy Dialogue.
The organisers, in a statement, yesterday, said the programme would bring together stakeholders from the public and private sectors, as well as civil society organisations, to present issues affecting Nigerians’ public health, discuss potential solutions and opportunities for progress, and chart actionable recommendations for policy actions.
Titled, “Strengthening Nutrition Outcomes in the Face of Climate Change,” the dialogue would draw participants from government, including the Ministries of Health, Agriculture and Environment, academia, researchers, development partners, civil society, nutrition commodities manufacturing and marketing organisations, relevant groups, associations and healthcare providers.
The promoter said this year’s theme highlights the importance of multi-stakeholder and multi-sectoral collaboration to strengthen and increase understanding of the linkages. The gathering is both physical and virtual.
