Addressing the complex problem of malnutrition would require a multi-pronged approach which would include adoption of new technologies.                                                                                                          

The agri food system needs long term reorientation in order to provide better access to safe and nutritious food along with minimising the cost on the environment and climate. A sustainable agri-food system is one in which a variety of sufficient, nutritious and safe foods are made available at an affordable price to everyone, and nobody goes hungry or suffers from any form of malnutrition.
