Identifying just transformations that can be a triple-win in terms of access to healthy and sustainable diets, opportunities to benefit from resources and assets and reduced environmental burdens.


A Vision for Adapted Crops and Soils

Exploring the most nutritious traditional and Indigenous crops in each of the African Union's five subregions, to assess the expected challenges posed to those crops by climate change.


Lancet Haematology Commission

How to create enabling environments at the global, national and local level to sustain political momentum towards anemia-related Sustainable Development Goal and World Health Assembly targets.
