2018 Symposium

6th Annual Agriculture to Nutrition Scientific Symposium

We are pleased to announce the next Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Nutrition Scientific Symposium: ‘Food, Diets & Nutrition: 25 Years of Progress and a Vision for Nepal’ will be held on November 14-16, 2018 in Kathmandu. This annual knowledge sharing event has gained tremendous momentum over the years and has allowed for the sharing of findings from agriculture – nutrition research conducted in or relevant to Nepal. A diverse audience of academia, policy makers, program implementers and students provide for an enriching and stimulating environment for those eager to learn and translate research into policy and practice. 

This year we are excited to announce the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Nutrition will partner with UNICEF to host the 6th scientific symposium &  UNICEF celebration of Nepal’s Progress on Nutrition. The event, funded by USAID, will be co-hosted by Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy, UNICEF – Nepal, Tribhuvan University’s Institute of Medicine (IOM) Community Medicine & Public Health Department, Nepal Agricultural Research Council (NARC) and the Nepali Technical Advisory Group (NTAG).

This year, the event will feature:

  • Abstract driven sessions on the agriculture to nutrition pathway
