Per Pinstrup-Andersen talks about new evidence on the linkages among agriculture, nutrition, and health, with a special emphasis on sub-Saharan Africa. Currently lost in debate—growing more food does not necessarily lead to better nutrition or health unless other things are put in place. Pinstrup-Andersen is a world-renowned specialist on undernutrition, health, poverty, and food, and in 2001 was named World Food Prize Laureate. Eran Bendavid, assistant professor of Medicine at Stanford, provides commentary. This is the tenth talk in FSE's Global Food Policy and Food Security Symposium Series.
