The concept of “nutrition-sensitive agriculture” designates a role for agriculture in providing food security – access to sufficient, safe, and nutritious food for all people at all times. However, chronic hunger continues, suggesting agriculture in its current state does not adequately fulfil this role. This journal issue searches for remedies to this situation, shows how closely agriculture, nutrition and health are linked, and takes a look at the various entry-points for improving nutrition through agriculture.
