On February 28, IFPRI will host the launch of Agriculture for Improved Nutrition: Seizing the Momentum. This book reviews the latest evidence, results from on-the-ground interventions, and recent national policy experiences of bringing agriculture and nutrition closer together. A three-part blog series accompanies the book’s release, beginning with a post by the book’s editors including IFPRI Director General Shenggen Fan.
