Title : Global Nutrition: Challenges and Solutions
Food insecurity is a global issue with significant effects on human health. However, while many efforts have been made in addressing hunger and improving health, continued progress is still necessary at many levels. This presentation explores how, in today’s connected global societies, solving social problems is becoming a multidisciplinary exercise that challenges businesses, governments, philanthropists, individuals and social enterprises to think holistically about their role and their relation to others—not as competitors but as collaborators serving as many stakeholders as possible. A Food Security Solutions Prioritization Process will be introduced as one of the key concepts. This is a four-step process created by the American Dietetic Association Foundation where work is guided by an advisory panel of diverse stakeholders from within the community. Step 1 involves identifying unmet needs; Step 2 suggest solutions; and Step 3 focuses on estimating values for each solution. The last Step 4 is a consensus-driven step, that uses the information from the other three steps to prioritize the suggested solutions. Handouts will be provided to all participants.
