SOCAP Open FAQs

THE FUTURE OF FOOD: SUSTAINABLE AND NUTRITIOUS SOLUTIONS

Bridget Brennan, PATH


The impact of climate change is stressing arable land and water resources, which will increasingly impact food systems, particularly for the most vulnerable populations. We know it’s possible to respond effectively to these challenges by recognizing and drawing on the interconnected components of climate, agriculture, nutrition, health, and women’s empowerment. Learn how PATH and partners are harnessing new agile and entrepreneurial approaches to nutrition and food security: from new vaccines that protect laying hens to the nutritional value of certain traditional foods (hint: insects).
