I attended the Institute of Medicine’s Mitigating the Nutritional Impacts of the Global Food Price Crisis: A Workshop. The meeting had some spectacular speakers that outlined the issues of the food price crisis, the global economic crisis and the ongoing unaddressed nutritional crisis. We are in one big crisis, and the problems are complex. Not too much in actually how to solve any of these looming issues, as is what usually happens in meetings, but there is much on the horizon by the UN, governments and NGOs to address at least food security and better nutrition. Things are at least moving in the right direction.
