Biofortification: An Agricultural Investment for Nutrition. Policy Brief No. 1

Abstract

This policy brief lays out technical evidence and arguments for expanding support for biofortification as an element of nutrition sensitive national agricultural research and investment strategies. It recommends that policymakers implement biofortification as one of a range of complementary approaches to reducing micronutrient deficiencies, and that they therefore invest in developing nationally appropriate biofortified crop varieties and scale up their adoption and consumption.
