This publication presents a set of 40 briefings, solicited by HarvestPlus for the Second Global Conference on Biofortification, “Getting Nutritious Foods to People,” which took place in Kigali, Rwanda from March 31 to April 2, 2014. The briefs were developed as background information for the conference and are intended to present existing evidence on biofortification, identify knowledge gaps, and stimulate discussion on how to leverage biofortification to improve nutrition and health. They include: 17 briefings on crop development, breeding and alternative approaches; 11 briefings on nutrition, consumer acceptance and cost-effectiveness; and 12 briefings on crop delivery experiences, mostly focusing on individual crops and countries.
