Transforming Nigeria’s Agrifood System: Wealthier, but also healthier
Transforming current food systems is widely acknowledged as key to achieving multiple Sustainable Development Goals, including zero hunger, good health and well-being, and climate action (FAO et al. 2021). Yet even before the COVID-19 pandemic, billions of people lacked access to adequate nutritious, safe, and affordable foods for a healthy diet (Hirvonen et al. 2020). Poor-quality diets are at the root of all forms of malnutrition, including child stunting, micronutrient deficiencies, and overweight/
obesity, as well as common non-communicable diseases — the consequences of which can last a lifetime and affect both
individuals and societies (Willet et al. 2019).
