GAIN Policy Brief - Nigeria on the path to food systems transformation

Nigeria’s delivery of a pathway for food systems transformation in advance of the first United Nations Food Systems Summit in 2021 is evidence of strong political commitment to transformative food systems action.  

It is increasingly recognised that food system issues must be tackled in a coherent way to capitalise on synergies existing across domains like nutrition, agriculture, health, and the environment. 

Strong momentum is being maintained in Nigeria around this work, evidenced by an April 2022 convening by the Federal Ministry of Budget and National Planning, which included a session to sensitise civil servants from all 36 states and the Federal Capital on transformative food systems priorities and plans.
