The use of non-affordability rates and the affordability gap of healthy, nutritious diets to inform repurposing of agricultural support policies for food systems transformation

Project: PhD

Project Details


For nutrition and food security stakeholders, the connection between availability, cost and affordability of foods and, in turn, of healthy, nutritious diets, is becoming increasingly important. Though agriculture support policies have been widely viewed as part of poverty reduction and welfare strategies, the study between of the direct relationship between these policies and affordability of diets is more recent. As it becomes apparent that the transformation of our food systems is necessary to meet the goals of affordability of healthy, nutritious diets, it’s evident that agricultural support policies will play a key role in these efforts. This project aims to contribute evidence on the dynamics that have existed between policy support, affordability of healthy, nutritious diets, and poverty alleviation efforts.
