Ep. 11: Future of Food Policy: Global Change Possible

16 million children in the world have severe malnutrition, and many more have moderate malnutrition. This can cause many issues including stunted growth. Yet at the same time, obesity is also a global problem.

“People have been talking about a food revolution,” says Francesco Branca, Director of the Department of Nutrition for Health and Development at the World Health Organization. “I think we should believe in it. And I think we are at a time when it might happen. With a global understanding of the issues, we might see change.”

This conversation is part of a series called The Future of Food Policy. The conversations were conducted at Duke University as a part of the development of a new initiative, the World Food Policy Center.
