Lynnette Neufeld, PhD  (Director, Food and Nutrition Division, FAO)


At its 27th Session in October 2020, the Committee on Agriculture (COAG) requested the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) “to produce a comprehensive, science and evidence-based global assessment of the contribution of livestock to food security, sustainable food systems, nutrition and healthy diets”.  The report series is co-led by the Animal Production and Food and Nutrition Divisions of FAO, overseen by the Livestock Sub-Committee of COAG.  During this presentation Dr. Neufeld will present an overview of the findings of the first in the series of 4 reports, this first document focusing on the Contribution of TASF to healthy diets and improved nutrition.
