A UN Standing Committee on Nutrition discussion paper reviews the challenges associated with the complex web of pathways that link water, food security, and nutrition outcomes. It recommends three key strategies: (1) implement nutrition-sensitive agricultural water management; (2) increase the environmental sustainability of diets; and (3) explicitly address social inequities in water-nutrition linkages.
Additional highlights from this week’s Compact2025 News in Brief include:
- A brief shows clear benefits in aligning trade policies with the goal of providing healthy and sustainable diets for all.
- A study explores the potential trade-offs between Sustainable Development Goals related to food production, protection of land resources, and climate change mitigation in India.
