The workshop was organized within the framework of the Wageningen University & Research (WUR) strategic research program (KB22) on Global Food & Nutrition Security (GF&NS) and marks the start of the Wageningen-led flagship program ‘Food Systems for Healthier Diets’ that will form part of the CGIAR research program Agriculture for Nutrition & Health (A4NH) in 2017-2022. The workshop was co-organised with the EU-funded research projects FOODSECURE and SUSFANS, which explore the future of global and European food and nutrition security, balanced diets and the sustainability of food systems. The aim of the workshop, which was attended by about 100 researchers and experts from the private sector, government and civil society organizations, was to support systematic food systems research as an analytical and policy device. Starting with invited keynote presentations, the workshop continued with open space workshops related to the ongoing Wageningen-based research programme Global Food & Nutrition Security (GF&NS). Finally, the workshop concluded with a plenary panel discussion with representatives from public and private sector to assess the role of food system analysis for policy and practice. This note captures the keynotes and parts of the plenary discussion; for the GF&NS section we refer to the website of the programme.
