Opportunities for Future Research and Innovation on Food and Nutrition Security and Agriculture The InterAcademy Partnership’s Global Perspective

All countries face the problem of combating malnutrition in its various forms: under-nutrition and micro-nutrient deficiencies as well as overweight and obesity. The scale and nature of these problems of course differ across countries and their populations. Latest data from the United Nations indicate worrying trends in global food and nutrition security that must be tackled. Science has the potential to find sustainable solutions for national and global food systems relating to the complex interplay of issues spanning health, nutrition, agriculture, climate change, ecology and human behaviour.
