Panel Organized by: Christel BinnieInternational Development Research Centre (IDRC) / Centre de recherches pour le développement international (CRDI)

Over the past five decades, global food systems and human diets have changed substantially. The food people eat—and the policies, economies, and natural ecosystems necessary to sustain these diets—profoundly impact the health and sustainability of communities worldwide.

Join our expert panel for a discussion about the bold and innovative actions that are improving health, preventing chronic disease, and ultimately promoting human development and environmental wellbeing. From improved food marketing regulations and better labeling policies for prepackaged foods, to community mobilization of farmers, schools, and grassroots organizations, policymakers are drawing on evidence-backed development research to make concrete progress.
