A new podcast series from Nourishing Millions features the latest thinking from policymakers, researchers, and practitioners about how to end hunger and malnutrition. The series will have 11 short episodes, one released each week, to tell the story of how small and large movements can help us achieve a food- and nutrition-secure world. The first episode explores how the consumption of insects has the potential to solve global malnutrition. In the second episode, Compact2025 Leadership Council member Catherine Bertini discusses how to create opportunities for women and girls in agriculture through education. Nourishing Millions, a collection of evidence-based case studies of nutrition successes, contributes to Compact2025’s global Knowledge and Innovation Hub.
