In low-and middle-income countries (LMIC), the effects of malnutrition and climate change become progressively dire. Most high productivity technologies that can help mitigate these shocks rest with organizations in high-income countries (HIC) who benefit from large consumer markets and large pools of venture capital to test and try innovations to make food systems nutritious and sustainable.
Sight and Life wants to change that.
We will initiate Food Systems Innovation Hub (FSIH) in rapidly emerging consumer markets, such as India, Bangladesh, Nigeria, Rwanda, and Kenya to stimulate investment in resilient and responsive food systems, and facilitate relevant technology transfer and know-how from HIC to LMIC.
Through partnerships, government collaboration, impact investors, philanthropies in the context of local entrepreneurs, the hubs will catalyse a transformative change for society-wide dietary shifts towards more efficient, healthier, and more environmentally friendly food systems.
Join us to discuss the means to accelerate this work to improve food safety, quality, nutrition and health outcomes.
