This is a very interesting short article from Nature. I am pleased that the author clearly articulates the role and contributions that SME’s can fulfill to support food and nutrition security, recognizing that within this, Governments have a clear enabling function. https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-018-03918-7?code=b3879769-7b76-4e72-9e1d-c5bc3c9ec1dc&error=cookies_not_supported&fbclid=IwAR0id38LdZ8Sz-ABOWG706Dl55Fd8FzMAK3MN97CSazOFczjugopEkxDrMM

Latest news from the Agripreneurship Alliance. We have just received notification that we are now an official Partner of the United Nations 10YFP Sustainable Food Systems Programme! The 10YFP Sustainable Food Systems Programme (SFS Programme) is a global multi-stakeholder initiative to accelerate the shift towards more sustainable food systems, all along the food value chain, from farm to fork. Among its focus themes are the promotion of sustainable diets; the reduction of food losses and waste; and strengthening resilient and diverse food production systems. The SFS Programme promotes activities that fall under these topics, in the areas of awareness raising, capacity development as well as facilitating access to knowledge, information and tools.
